Genealogical Research Death Index for New York 1957-1962

The New York State Department of Health has some death records online from 1957 to 1962.
In the drop down menu in the “category” box, choose “Genealogical Research.” There are instructions for downloading the data. 
The Genealogical Research Death Index assists individuals with locating New York State (NYS) death records that fall within defined genealogy years, exclusive of New York City recorded death records. 
The Index contains information on decedents, parents, date of death, gender, age at death and NYS file number that will allow the public to search for individuals on a variety of genealogy criteria; if on file for at least 50 years.  
Thanks to The New York Genealogical & Biographical Society for the heads-up about this online database

I tried to download the file and got an error: You don't have permission to access metrix/DeathIndex/NYSDOH_GenealogicalResearchDeathIndex_Data.csv on this server.

Would this be because I am an Ontario, Canada resident?

Lorine: Were you actually able to download this index? I just get an error message saying I don't have permission to access it, when I click on the Download button.
