Premature Mortality Trends 2000-2007 DS 09-09000
County of Residence Populations
Of California’s 58 counties, 21 had age-adjusted YPLL-75 rates that were higher in 2007 than 2000, and 37 had lower rates. Trinity County in 2007 reflected the highest reliable YPLL-75 rate, 11,357.1 years per 100,000 population, and Mono County the lowest reliable YPLL-75 rate, 3,911.7 years per 100,000 population. Detailed YPLL-75 rates by county of residence for each year are shown in Table 3 (PDF).
Sixteen counties showed statistically significant trends in the 2000 to 2007 time period. The counties that showed statistically significant decreases were Alameda, Contra Costa, Los Angeles, Marin, Monterey, Orange, Placer, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Francisco, San Joaquin, Santa Clara, Sonoma, and Yolo. Siskiyou County had a statistically significant increase during the period. Additional information about trend analysis is located in the Technical Notes.
San Francisco County exhibited the largest rate decrease between 2000 and 2007 (7,227.2 to 5,661.3 years per 100,000 population). Trinity experienced the largest rate increase (5,954.0 to 11,357 years per 100,000 population).
Mono County demonstrated the largest percentage decrease in YPLL-75 rate, 22.0 percent between 2000 and 2007. Trinity County had the largest percentage rate increase, 90.7 percent. The 90.7 percent increase was more than double any other county’s percentage change.
A California counties map grouped by YPLL-75 rate quartiles showed some apparent geographic differences in 2007. The state’s northwest area rates were in the 75th percentile or above. Most of the central valley and southern inland areas rates were above the state median. The central coastal, southern coastal, and the southern border areas were below the state median.
