Age-Adjusted Death Rate due to Cerebrovascular Disease (Stroke)

Shows the age-adjusted death rate per 100,000 population due to cerebrovascular disease and stroke. A stroke occurs when the blood supply to the brain is blocked or when a blood vessel in the brain ruptures, causing brain tissue to die. A stroke often starts as a sudden feeling of numbness or weakness on half of the body. Stroke is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States and is a major cause of adult disability. About 800,000 people in the United States have a stroke each year. One American dies from a stroke every 4 minutes, on average (Nat Vital Stat Rep. 2011; Heart disease and stroke statistics—2013 update: a report from the American Heart Association).
