About Death Data

The Center for Health Statistics registers only those vital events occurring in Oregon. However, information on Oregon resident deaths occurring out-of-state to is also collected through an interstate exchange agreement. Data may be tabulated by residence (where the person lived) or by occurrence (where the event occurred).
