ICD-9 and ICD-10 Codes

Causes 01 through 31 at the left can be chosen from any of the main MICA's query screens (Step 6 for county and/or zipcode and Step 3 for the maps). The indented causes can be chosen by choosing the corresponding heading from the main query screen and then "drilling down" by clicking on the cause name in the title of table you create.

Codes given in three digits include all four-digit codes within them; For example, "A16" includes A16 and A16.1 through A16.9.

* Published in "Deaths: Preliminary Data for 1999," National Vital Statistics Reports, vol. 49 no.3. National Center for Health Statistics, 2001

Notes on "other" categories:

Subcategory 076, "Other diseases of respiratory system" is an NCHS category which includes all of the respiratory diseases not in one of the other respiratory categories.

Subcategory 086, "Other disorders of kidney" is also an NCHS category, but it does not contain all the kidney diseases which are not in any of the specific kidney groups; about 44 deaths per year are due to kidney diseases not in one of the "kidney" groupings.

Subcategory 115, "Other diseases of the digestive system" is not an official NCHS category. It was added to category 20 for MICA users wishing to be able to get counts for all digestive disorders.

Subcategory 065, "Other disorders of circulatory system" is under category 31 "Other disease causes" rather than category 13 "Other major cardiovascular diseases" because those causes, while circulatory, are not considered major cardiovascular disease. Most of the deaths in this category are due to deep vein thrombosis.
