Leading Causes of Death, 1999-2002 for Cleveland, Ring Municipalities, and Cuyahoga County
Joint report of CDPH and CCBH: Percent of deaths by cause
Tables with the leading causes of death occuring in 1999-2002 for residents of Cleveland and neighborhoods (statistical planning areas, or SPAs), Inner and Outer Ring municipalities and all of Cuyahoga County were generated as a joint project of the Cleveland Department of Public Health and the Cuyahoga County Board of Health.

These figures are not age-adjusted, so that communities with older residents may appear to have a larger percentage of deaths due to chronic conditions. However, these statistics present the burden of disease leading to death in a population.
Data was provided by the Ohio Department of Health and the Cuyahoga County Board of Health, with analysis by the Cleveland Department of Public Health.
