This user-friendly data query system allows public health practitioners and researchers, as well as the general public, access to generate standard or customized mortality tables without delay. Access to Death (Mortality) data is available from from 1980 to the current year, and these data can be broken down by various demographics, including age, gender, county, race, Hispanic origin, education level, and cause of death (standard and rankable groupings for both ICD-9 [1991- 1998] and ICD-10 [1999+] mortality codes).

In addition to frequencies, percentages, crude mortality rates, age-adjusted mortality rates (using state or national standards) and years of potential life lost (YPLL) can also be generated.

Final Death Statistics are available from 1980 through the most recent year of data in which all death records for Oklahoma residents have been received and reviewed by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). These statistics are not subject to change.

Preliminary Death Statistics are available for years in which death records for Oklahoma residents are still in the collection process. These statistics are subject to change.

The National Center for Health Statistics has discontinued the postcensal bridged-race population estimates (used for calculating rates) with the release of the Vintage 2020 estimates. Starting with 2021 death statistics, OK2SHARE will display the racial categories used by the U.S. Census Bureau - White, Black, American Indian, Asian, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander, and Two or more races. Hispanic Origin did not change. There will also be 2010 to 2020 trends using the new race categories along with the existing bridged race categories.
