Mortality statistics for Kalamazoo County residents are presented in this section.  Life expectancy, overall mortality rates, mortality rates due to specific causes of death, and the impact of premature mortality on the population all provide information about the health status of the community.  Analyses of causes of death and disparities among segments of the population can help members of the community to prioritize health concerns and to develop intervention programs.
