OASIS Leading Causes of Premature Death Tool - Lifespan Histomaps

This tool ranks the top 10 causes of Premature Death (measured by Years of Potential Life Lost (YPLL)), and displays a Lifespan Histomap.

YPLL represents the sum of years of life lost before age 75. For example, a death at age 65 would be 10 years of potential life lost.

A Lifespan Histomap shows the age-specific percentage of the number of deaths from each cause.

Data are available for 1994-current year by State, Public Health District, County, and Demographic Cluster.

OASIS is a suite of tools used to access the Georgia Department of Public Health's standardized health data repository.
