Video: U.S. Mortality Trends 2020-2022 part 6: Heart Disease and Cancer
These are the top 2 causes of death in the U.S., and they took two different routes through the pandemic
Heart Disease and Cancer are the top two causes of death in the U.S. -- they were before the pandemic, and during the pandemic. In this video, I look at the shape of mortality by age group for 2018-2022, and how the death rates changed for each group relative to 2019.
The death rates changed a great deal for heart disease and not so much for cancer.
