US Decennial Life Tables 1991-1989

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics has recently released this series of publications (Adobe Acrobat [.pdf] format only) that provide death rates calculated using "data from the 1990 Census of Population and deaths occurring in the United States to residents of the United States during the 3-year period, 1989-91." At present, 46 volumes are available (the US, the District of Columbia, and 44 states). Data are broken out by age, sex, and race. For each age, the tables list the proportion dying, the number living and dying per 100,000, the stationary population, and the average remaining lifetime. Complete documentation is available. What makes these publications so fascinating is the granularity of age breakdown, basically a year-by-year breakdown from birth to age 110.
