The South Carolina Digital State Documents Depository provides access to publications produced by state agencies and state-supported academic institutions. These publications provide citizens with crucial information about state government, including statistics, annual accountability reports, and data on a wide variety of topics related to the state. The new August 2016  South Carolina State Documents publication provides a description, author, and link to the full-text for each new agency document.

This month, we highlight a one-page chart from the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control. This easy-to-understand, color coordinated chart provides information on the 10 leading causes of death by age group in the state from 2010-2014.  It packs a lot of information about health and mortality into a clear and concise infographic to show patterns and differences in age groups.
