    • Crossed above US rate in early 90s
    • May be trending downward in most recent data, and improving relative to overall state trends as well
  • Mortality rate for women 65-79 is just now crossing the US rate line
    • If trend continues, there will be a noticeable mortality disparity in all three states in 5-10 years
