dc.description.abstractThrough the organization of data obtained from Forest Hill Cemetery in Utica, NY observations on the causes of death in this region could be made. Here the primary focus is on leading causes of death. A comparison is made between the leading causes of death in 2014 and the same causes of death from the mid-19th to mid-20th century. A particular focus of this examination was Tuberculosis, Influenza and Pneumonia, and Heart Disease death rates in the region throughout the years 1850-1959, as CDC records indicated that these conditions were the leading causes of death in the United States within this time period. Observing this data indicates that advances in medicine and changing lifestyles have impacted causes of mortality in the local population.en_US
