Number of annual deaths due to any cause per 100,000 people age 25-64
Indicator Summary Score
Numbers listed on the maps are indicator summary scores, which measure how far a state has to go to meet the HOPE Goal (Distance to Goal) and how much variation there is across racial and ethnic groups within the state on the measure (Racial Inequity). Scores range from 0 to 100 with 100 indicating the state with the best combined performance. Hovering over a state reveals information on Distance to Goal and Racial Inequity separately.

Why it Matters
Reductions in premature mortality is a long-term health outcome indicator, which shows the positive impact of other community changes made years earlier.

- Asian/Pacific Islander adults aged 25-44 have lower rates of premature death with 54 annual deaths per population of 100,000, while Multiracial adults have the lowest rate among the 45-64 age group with 255 annual deaths per 100,000.
