  1. This number does not match the 1511 dogs reported as being deceased at the time of the survey; however, it is the number for which an age at the time of death was reported.
  2. Age categories between the 1998 Survey and the 2012 Electronic survey do not match identically; therefore the categories with the closest approximations were compared.
