5<!--    <TEXT>The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) has developed a uniform procedure for ranking cause of death. Using the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) coding structure, 113 selected causes of death were consolidated from the entire ICD coding structure. Of these 113 causes a subset of 50 rankable causes were selected to rank deaths for individuals older than one year of age. A subset of 71 rankable causes of death was selected for infant deaths. The rankings denote the most frequently occurring cause of death among causes eligible for ranking. See the help page on the left Navigation for a listing.</TEXT>     -->
