- indicates no deaths listed.

Note:  The sum of individual site death totals may be greater than the total number of deaths for “any site” because some decedents have more than one site of mesothelioma listed on their death certificate. See Appendix for information about data source, methods, ICD codes, and limitations for general caution regarding inferences based on small numbers of deaths.
