California report finds cause of death varies from county to county
Daily Bulletin

Los Angeles County residents are more likely to die of influenza than most California residents, while those who live in San Bernardino County face higher cancer-related deaths, according to a state health report released Monday.

Compiled by the California Department of Public Health, the report delivers a county-by-county comparison of diseases and conditions across the state, including how those compare with the national goals established under Healthy People 2020. The initiative provides a set of health benchmarks launched by the federal government, and it monitors progress over time to measure the impact of prevention programs in communities across the nation.
