Cochise County Death Index (since 1980)

Typically 3-5 deaths occur every day in Cochise County*                       75-120 per month – over 1,000 per year

This may be the best resource about deaths, of all types, in Cochise County, AZ . . .  BUT

The limitations of this resource (and others) –  Many websites re-publish information purchased from the U.S. Social Security Administration.  The SSA acknowledges that the information they provide is incomplete, and became more so with records since 2002, and most recently (Nov 2011) stopped including in the DEATH MASTER FILE information collected from state agencies determined to be “protected state death records”, has removed 8.9 million records and will add about 1 million fewer records annually.

In our most interesting corner of the world  – where rumors, misinformation and myths abound – we aim to use the best tools and highest journalistic standards and become the best source for reliable data about recent deaths in, and/or directly related to, Cochise County, AZ.  Our initial estimate is that should be about 1,000 deaths per year.   We intend to find and publish information about more than 30, 000 deaths (from about Jan 1, 1980).

We’re working on a better format/system for this project. This is a start. A place to put the data that we learn about from a variety of sources (families, police reports, hospitals, care centers/hospices, funeral homes, other news services, etc).

* This list contains persons who died in Cochise County, plus persons who died elsewhere but were at time of death considered to be resident of Cochise County, AZ
