This dataset contains cells for counts of vital events by U.S. county and year from 1915-2007. Vital events include the live births, infant deaths, and all-age deaths. When sources allow, data are disaggregated by county of occurrence, county of residence, and race. On 2016-08-20, the openICPSR web site was moved to new software. In the migration process, some projects were not published in the new system because the decisions made in the old site did not map easily to the new setup. An ICPSR staff member manually published these projects, taking care to preserve the original wishes of the depositor.
