Death in Sin City: Analyzing the CDC's mortality database

Death in Sin CityAlex Richards and Marshall Allen analyzed data from the CDC's mortality database to find out how the causes of death in Nevada and Clark County, home to Las Vegas, compared to the national average. They found that Nevada has the 12th highest death rate among people younger than 65, has a rate of deadly accidental poisoning and exposure to noxious substances that’s almost twice the national rate, has a rate from alcoholic liver disease 1.7 times the national rate and has the highest suicide rate in the nation and a suicide rate among the elderly that’s nearly three times the national rate.
