It relates to the registration area of continental United States, the Territory of Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands, and the data were compiled from transcripts of certificates of death received from the registration authorities of the States and other areas. “It makes available detailed figures concerning deaths in individual States and in cities of 100,000 population or more, including classifications by sex, co? or, and age, and by cause of death according to the International Classification of Causes of Death.
The report was prepared under the direction of Dr. T. l. Murphy, Chief Statistician for Vital Statistics, assisted by Willard C. Smith, Assistant Chief Statistician for Vital Statistics. The publication of this report “was delayed by the lack of funds for printing; and in order to keep within the limits of the amount since made available it has been necessary to reduce the size of the volume considerably as compared with the report for 1930. This necessitated some rearrangements in the tabular presentation together with the elimination of certain detail, most of which is available in manuscript tables on file in the Bureau of the Census.
