OASIS Mapping Tool - Maternal Child Health (MCH) - Maternal Death Statistics

OASIS (Online Analytical Statistical Information System) is a suite of tools used to access the Georgia Department of Public Health's standardized health data repository.

  • Create maps of maternal mortality counts and rates by age, race, ethnicity, and county for 1994-latest year available.
  • Multiple selections can be made by holding down the Control or Shift keys.
  • The source of these data is Death Certificates reported to the Georgia Office of Vital Records, and represent Georgia residents whether the death occurred in Georgia or elsewhere. Reported causes of death are based on the Underlying Cause: that which initiated the events leading to death. Assignment of underlying cause is performed by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) and uses ICD10 since 1999.
