1994 data are from the NJ single cause of death file. 1999 data are from the NCHS multiple cause of death file.
1994 deaths were classified by ICD-9 and have been comparability-modified. See Table A for preliminary comparability ratios.
Age-adjusted rates are computed based on the total population and the 2000 standard, except for cancer of the prostate for which the rate is based on the male population and cancers of the uteri and ovary for which the rate is based on the female population.
** Number is too small to calculate a reliable rate. -- No comparable category in ICD-9
