Age-adjusted Rates For Selected Age Groups
Use this measure when you need age-adjusted rates for selected age groups – such as ages 0-14, ages 35-44, or ages 55-64 and 75+. This measure adjusts for the size of the population denominator and thus provides age-adjusted rates that are consistent with the selected age group populations.
When using this measure, select only a row variable to define the output, not a column variable. If you selected Ranked Causes as a measure, you need to select “Underlying Causes of Injury Death” as a row variable. Otherwise the selected row variable should be either Geographic Area, Years, or one of the demographic variables (Age Groups, Sex, Race, or Hispanic Ethnicity.)
If an age-adjusted rate for the entire population (all ages) is desired, use the Age-adjusted Rate measure.
