Health Reports & Data

Death Data

The Death Data is composed of information captured by the Hawaii State Department of Health (DOH) from the issuance of death certificates, fetal death reports, and ITOPS records. The HHDW reports display death counts, mortality rates, and years of potential life lost for deaths among residents by gender, geographic location, race-ethnicity, age, and cause of death. Additionally, deaths among neonates, post neonates, and infants are reported.
