Death Certificate Data

Death certificates in Montana are filed by the person in charge of disposition (funeral directors, coroners or family members). Filers obtain demographic information from an informant, usually a family member of the decedent. The cause of death is certified by one of several authorized practitioners (physician, physician assistant, advanced practice registered nurse, or coroner). Accidental and suspicious deaths are referred to the coroner in the county of death. Most death certificates are entered and filed in the electronic Vital Statistics Information Management System. VSIMS includes extensive edits for completeness and consistency. In addition, submitted records are reviewed by the Montana Office of Vital Statistics. The data are transmitted to the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) where they are machine coded into ICD-10 cause-of-death codes. NCHS returns the coded files to the OVS. The mortality data in this IBIS-Q query module have been derived from death certificates in participation with the National Vital Statistics System, and are maintained and provided by the Office of Vital Statistics, Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services. The causes of death were coded using the 10th Revision of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10) codes.[[br]][[br]]

Population Data

Population estimates use decimal fractions. This may cause totals to vary slightly due to rounding. These estimates are considered the most accurate estimates for the state of Montana.

Population estimates for previous years are occasionally revised as new information becomes available. When publishing trend data, always be sure that your rates for earlier years match current rates on MT-IBIS that have been calculated with the most up-to-date population estimates.[[br]][[br]]
