Where are the most deaths by Stroke in your state?

You can go to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and use their interactive Atlas of Heart disease and Stroke to get statistics for your state.  The interactive map lets you put in demographics such as race, sex, age and year.  In the sample below, I asked for information about Hispanic women over 35 between 2012-2014 in California (Where metabolic balance has our headquarters.)  The graphic below show stroke deaths per 100,000 people.  I also asked for data for White women over 35 so and men from both categories so that you can compare the graphics.  If you want to check out your state, you can go to the interactive map and input your data.
