  • Abstract

    This study provides mortality data for respondents to the TECUMSEH COMMUNITY HEALTH STUDY, 1959-1969 (ICPSR 8969). The seven variables in the data collection include an identifier to link the mortality data with the core data file, the contact month and year (for respondents who were alive during the 1978 ascertainment period), respondents' mortality status (alive, dead, or unknown), the month and year of death, and the cause of death (International Classification of Diseases, 8th Revision codes). These mortality follow-up data were recorded for the 8,637 white respondents to the original data collection.

All 8,800 residents of the 2,400 households in Tecumseh, Michigan were canvassed in 1957. In each of three rounds of data collection (1959-1960, 1962-1965, and 1967-1969), interviews and medical examinations were conducted with remaining and new household residents, yielding a total of 11,563 persons who were examined at least once, and 4,312 who were examined during all three rounds. This mortality file contains data for the 8,637 white respondents who were first examined in Round I.
