Includes deaths due to an infection, age ≥ 15 years. Listed in order of ascending age-adjusted sepsis-attributed mortality. *Unreliable estimate due to limited African American population. Among state-level estimates, minimum 41.0 per 100,000, maximum 122.7 per 100,000, median 61.7 per 100,000 (interquartile range 53.9-74.4 per 100,000).
