These maps display mortality-related state health indicators. They were created in response to a growing demand for health indicator data at the county and census tract levels. To protect Oregonians' confidentiality and ensure data reliability, seven years of data were combined for the following health indicators:

  • Age-adjusted mortality rate
  • Age-adjusted years of potential life lost
  • Age-adjusted cancer death rate
  • Age-adjusted heart disease death rate
  • Age-adjusted chronic lower respiratory death rate
  • Age-adjusted cerebrovascular heart disease death rate
  • Age-adjusted unintentional injury death rate
  • Age-adjusted suicide death rate

Life Expectancy at Birth by Oregon Census Tract (USALEEP)


VIEW MAP: 2010 - 2015

This map shows estimated life expectancy at birth by Oregon census tract for the period 2010-2015. Life expectancy at birth is the average number of years a newborn is expected to live if mortality rates at the time of birth remain the same. Census tracts include an average of 4,000 people who typically have similar characteristics, such as social and economic status.

Please see our Life Expectancy in Oregon page for more information, including a downloadable file of the data.

Data source: The National Center for Health Statistics, with death records compiled by the Oregon Center for Health Statistics, 2010 decennial census population counts, and American Community Survey 5-year population estimates
