Note: Numbers of deaths are rounded independently and may not add to totals. Work productivity costs of mortality are estimated for people ages 18-74 years old and assumed to be zero for 75+ years because of low labor force participation. Household productivity costs of mortality are calculated for people ages 18-84.
