What does these code mean?

Over 25 million Italians have emigrated between 1861 and 1960 with a migration boom between 1871 and 1915 when over 13,5 million emigrants left the country for European and overseas destinations.

I am no expert :-)

Reading across the top of the form (after age)...
Place of death - Pittsburgh
County of Occupation - 70 (do not know this code #)
Date of Death - January 11, 1959
File Number - (This is the death certificate # filed with the state) - 000099
Hospital - 34 (hospital code number to identify the hospital)
County of Residence - 713 (county code where he lived)

I tried finding the code reference numbers but have not been successful :-(

However, you can request the death certificate - looks like a non-certified copy is only $3.00
Use the State File Number above...

Hope this helps.
