Supplementary notes
"As defined in CDC research, deaths prior to age 80, which is just over US life expectancy, are considered premature and therefore preventable. Potentially preventable deaths are determined as the difference of observed to expected deaths for ages 79 and below. Expected deaths are defined as the expected death rate times the associated population."
