A Map Showing the "Most Distinctive" Causes of Death by State

In creating a map illustrating the causes of death most common in the citizens of each state, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention went further than merely to show the main culprits such as heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes, which are basically equal opportunity killers across the board. Some lesser causes of mortality are far more common in some states than in others.

After performing several calculations in their line of research, the CDC revealed a list of 23 secondary causes of death. Read more about how the findings were calculated and see which of the 23 causes of death was most common in your state here.
