To me, death has never been taboo. It’s something a lot of us think about but never speak on. Death is a topic some people prefer not to discuss, but we cannot escape it. Nobody has ever managed to escape it.
People die every single day, which isn’t a fun thing to talk about. That’s why we have to live every day as if it were our last. According to the CDC, the average age of death in North Carolina is 78.1 years old as of 2019.
It may not be pleasant, but it is a part of life. I think you will enjoy this list if you are a morbid person, just like me. The following is a list of North Carolina’s leading causes of death. All 2020 data are final. 2020 birth data come from the National Vital Statistics System (NVSS) via CDC WONDER; 2020 death data, including leading causes of death, firearm mortality, homicide, drug overdose mortality, and infant mortality, come from the NVSS via CDC WONDER and rankings and rates are based on 2020 age-adjusted death rates.
