RB6_5   The Institute of Health Metrics based at the University of Washington, School of Medicine, provides visualization of maternal mortality rates at the county level, but to gather timeseries data and analyze trends in maternal mortality one has to click on the visualization many times. This paper eases this burden; it provides maternal mortality data and change metrics for each of the 102 Illinois counties. Other than a listing of maternal mortality data by race, the paper provides several insights from the data such as:   1.  The age-adjusted, typical maternal mortality rate in Illinois is 2.92 for the Whites, 8.89 for the Blacks, and 3.53 for the Hispanics, and (2)  Cook County in the metro had the largest MMRs for Blacks and American Indian / Alaskan natives.
