It is important to understand how to locate, read and analyze collected data
Step One: Using the CDC Wonder data located at http://wonder.cdc.gov/cmf-icd10.html for “all causes of death” for males in your state at a calculated rate of per 100,000 in 2013, compare this to “all causes of death” for males in a different state of your choosing. Which state (of the two that you have chosen) has the higher rate for “all causes of deaths” for males in 2013? Why do you think this is so?
Step Two: Using the same criteria as above, select at topic of your choice from the heading “Injury Mechanism & All Other Leading Causes” which state (of the two that you have chosen) has the higher rates of your selected cause? Why do you think this is so? For example, what environmental, social, or economic, behavioral factors, etc. may be related to this outcome?
Step Three: Write a one to two page (not counting title and reference pages) APA style paper explaining which states were chosen, which topic was chosen for injury mechanism and all other leading causes, the data results, an analysis of the data, and the reason(s) for the disparities. Include in your paper a graph which displays the data.
