Data Type: Vital Statistics Questions

  1. Where can I find a digital version of birth data for Michigan counties, for the 1950s and 1960s?
  2. Where can I get exact date of birth data for the US?
  3. Is there any source that reports percent of rural population in the USA by race (1965-2010)?
  4. I need historical data on life expectancy and child outcomes for Nepal and how this compares to the US historically. In other words, when did the US look like Nepal in 1970?
  5. I am looking for a number of US births in each month from January 1985 to December 1994. I have looked on NCHS's website and cannot find it. Can you help me?
  6. Where can I find data on exact dates of death?
  7. A grad student is looking to compare birth data for specific days across several years (2000-2002) in the United States. Does anyone know where these data may be found?
  8. Where can one get abortion data? Right now I need data for the state of New York, but I'd like to have it for all states.
  9. Do you know of a source of vital statistics data for the United Kingdom and Canada? My ideal data would be single years of age and cause of death for many years.
  10. How is the residence of prisoners noted on death certificates - the prison or the original home address? What about other institutional populations (dorms, hospitals, etc.)?
  11. What level of geography do natality detail files go down to?
  12. The 1970 natality detail file does not have FIPS codes to identify states and counties. It has NCHS codes. Is there a crosswalk between the two?
  13. I am trying to some mortality data for the state of Michigan and Montcalm county, Michigan from 1960 to present. We’d prefer age-adjusted figures over age-specific. Do you have any thoughts on how best to obtain these data? This is for a health disparities documentary and the data are needed immediately.
  14. I am looking for estimates of the size of the 15-44 year old female population by state for a far back as I can get it. I am trying to construct fertility rates and have births back to 1930. Even if I can not get them back to 1930, getting them back to the late 1940s would be very helpful.
  15. I am looking for the total number of births (no rates), 1975-present, by state. I need for this to be in electronic form if possible.
