Morbitity and Mortality Summary Stats

Veterinary laboratory submissions often include a summary of morbidity and mortality in the population of animals being treated. We have tentatively mapped the population size (denominator) to 43138-7 Population size Investigation. But we don’t find anything for the two numerators: number ill and number dead.

Are we looking at this wrong? Have we just failed to find them? Or do we need to request codes?


Hi Mike,

You may have already found these terms. If not, here they are:

82844-2 Number affected by condition Population

82843-4 Number dead from condition Population
