(Darkest color on maps)

Quartiles in this report allow you to compare your county’s data with other counties.

Calculation of quartiles require several steps to create the final results.

First, the county values are sorted from most favorable to least favorable.

Second, a rank is assigned based on the value for each county in relation to the preceding county. If a county has the same value as the preceding county, then the same rank is assigned.

Third, the ranking is divided into 4 groups. The number of counties in each group depends on how many counties had the same rank.

3Healthy People 2020 goals are single-year rates per 100,000 population (or percentages) at the national level. Goals are not available for all indicators.

4Includes primary and contributing diagnoses.
