Explanatory Notes

In most cases, table headings and footnotes provide definitions for the reported statistics. Additional information needed for data clarification includes the following:

Number of States Higher

This figure is given whenever the statistic or the required numerators and denominators were available for states. NA means not available.

Place of Event

Unless otherwise noted, data are by place of residence.


Some of the county-level rates of Table 8 have been adjusted for age. Thus, the differences observed are due to factors other than the age distribution of the populations. For smaller counties, the measures in Table 8 may be unstable due to small numbers of events.
