OASIS Leading Causes of Premature Death Tool - Mortality Pyramids

This tool ranks the top 10 causes of Premature Death (measured by Years of Potential Life Lost (YPLL)), and displays Mortality Pyramid Charts for each.

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.

The Mortality Pyramids show the percentage of deaths by Race, Sex, and Age, with a focus on those that occurred at ages less than 75 years.

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.
