Delivery method


The International Classification of Diseases (ICD) is designed to encourage international comparability in the collection, processing, classification, and presentation of mortality statistics. The reported conditions are then translated into medical codes through use of the classification structure and the selection and modification rules contained in the applicable revision of the ICD, published by the World Health Organization (WHO) in this public dataset.

These medical codes improve the usefulness of mortality statistics by giving preference to certain categories, by consolidating conditions, and by systematically selecting a single cause of death from a reported sequence of conditions. The single selected cause for tabulation is called the underlying cause of death, and the other reported causes are the nonunderlying causes of death.
