General Instructions:

  • Follow steps to perform desired search. Some steps contain more detailed instructions.
  • Items allowing multiple selections are marked "(Multiple)".
  • To select/deselect multiple items, hold down the CTRL key.
  • Characteristics with nothing selected will imply that there is no subset for that characteristic.
  • The selection of sub-setting criteria marked with an asterisk "*" or the selection of certain drilldown values may disable the capability to generate birth and death rates.
  • The source of the characteristics are identified by Birth Certificate (BC) or Death Certificate (DC).
Step 1: Time Span, Counties, Cities, or the Entire State (Required)

Use Standard Statistical File?

Late filings are records that are received after the statistical file is closed for a year. For example, in 2007, 54,480 Oklahoma births were included in the statistical file. After the file was closed, an additional 112 birth records were received and considered as "late files." Similarly, in 2007, 470 infant deaths were included in the statistical file and an additional 42 "late files" were received bringing the total to 512. The inclusion of late death files would change the rate of infant deaths from 8.6 to 9.3 (per 1000 live births) in 2007.

Step 5: Define Report Content and Submit Request
This section allows you to define the structure of the resultant table.  
  • Select  up to two grouping levels in addition to "Years" and "Geographic Area". 
  • If "Individual Years" is checked this will generate a table for each year in the time span where as if the "Individual Years" is not selected the table generated will be the combined counts, percents and rates of the selected time span.  
  • If rates or percents are desired and can be generated, select the appropriate check box.
  • The rates generated are based on the Population Estimates with bridged racial categories  that have been recently released by NCHS.
