Data Notes

Death rates were age-adjusted to the 2000 U.S. standard population.

Prior to 1999, drug-induced death was defined by ICD-9 codes: 292, 304, 305.2-305.9, E850-E858, E950.0-E950.5, E962.0, E980.0-E980.5.

For 1999 and beyond, drug-induced death was defined by ICD-10 codes:
D52.1, D59.0, D59.2, D61.1, D64.2, E06.4, E16.0, E23.1, E24.2, E27.3, E66.1, F11-16 (.0-.5, .7-.9), F17 (.0, .3-.5, .7-.9), F18-F19 (.0-.5, .7-.9), G21.1, G24.0, G 25.1, G25.4, G25.6, G44.4, G62.0, G72.0, I95.2, J70.2-J70.4, L10.5, L27.0-L27.1, M10.2, M32.0, M80.4, M81.4, M83.5, M87.1, R78.1-R78.5, X40-X44, X60-X64, X85, Y10-14.   Rates for the following counties are unreliable due to a small number of deaths during the three years: Catron, De Baca, Guadalupe, Hidalgo, Mora and Union.

There were no deaths in Harding County.

The 2006 drug-induced death rate is shown for the U.S.

Definition

Drug-induced death is defined as the number of deaths caused by drugs per 100,000 population. Drug-induced deaths are those in which drugs are the primary cause, whether unintentional or intentional.

How We Calculated the Rates

Numerator: The total number of drug-induced deaths per year.
Denominator: The mid-year estimated population for annual rates.
