slides: Rhode Island’s Top 10 Killers

Thursday, October 11, 2012

 

What diseases and related causes kill the most Rhode Islanders every year? And what can you do to make sure you stay away from these grim tallies? Here are the Top 10 killers in Rhode Island, based on the most recent data from the Centers for Disease Control.

Note: for national rankings, a lower number means a higher rate. For example, a #1 ranking in heart disease would mean a state's rate is the highest (or worst) in the nation. Correspondingly, a higher number means a lower, or better, rate (a #50 ranking in diabetes would mean a state's rate is the best in the nation). (Additional research by Monica White)
