Increasing mortality rates for US adults aged 25-44: CDC



According to recent research by the Centers for Disease Control and Control (CDC) published on Tuesday, mortality rates among young and middle-aged adults have risen in the US, with white and black people having higher mortality rates than Hispanics.

Between 2012 and 2017, whites and blacks aged 25-44 rose 21% for both groups, while Hispanic people in the same age group saw a 13% increase.

Sally Curtin, a statistician at the National Center for Health Statistics of the CDC and one of the authors of the report, said an increase in suicides, murders and drug overdoses contributed to the higher rates for the younger part of the group.

According to the American Foundation, suicides in the United States increased 19.2% in young adults between the ages of 2012 and 2017 25 to 34 years for suicide prevention. According to the Congressional Research Service, murders in the country increased from 2014 to 2016, although rates were close to historic lows.

Drug overdoses fell by around 5% in 2018, the first decline since 1990, according to preliminary figures from Die CDC, which was released earlier this month. There were more than 702,000 overdose deaths between 1999 and 2017, of which 10% were reported in 2017, according to the Agency.

Curtin noted that an increase in deaths from heart disease was a factor in the higher numbers for the older part of the 25- to 44-year-olds.

On a larger scale, the mortality rates among the three groups were different.

The overall mortality rate of Hispanic adults, aged 25 years and older, has generally decreased from 2000 to 2017, according to research. Overall black-and-white adult rates declined in 2011 and 2012, but remained stable until 2017.

This file is the exterior of the headquarters of the Center for Disease Control, Atlanta, October 13, 2014, remained stable from 2011 to 2017 after declining from 2000 to 2011. However, the rates for white and black adults, ages 45 to 64, increased from 2010 to 2017, with they increased more strongly for white adults than for black adults.

Adult adults over the age of 65 and all three groups experienced a general decline during the period.

Curtin pointed out that it is important to look at specific age groups in order to better understand the mortality trends.

"[The overall data] masks what's going on in those other groups," she said.

The statistics are from death certificates from all 50 states and from Washington, DC.
