All age-adjusted rates on this report are 3-year rates per 100,000 and are calculated using the 2000 Standard US Population and July 1 population estimates from the Florida Legislature, Office of Economic and Demographic Research. The population data for 2001-2010, along with rates affected by the population data, have been updated on FLHealthCHARTS. Following a census, it is customary to revise population projections for the intercensal years based on information from the latest census. Revising the population data from what was predicted to actual estimates ensures accurate accounting of the racial, ethnic, and gender distribution of the population. These changes affect the population data and rates calculated for your community.

ACounty Quartiles

Most favorable situation
1
(Lightest color on maps)
Average
2 or 3
Least favorable situation
4
(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.

BCounty Trends

Trends over time are used to see if an indicator has improved or worsened. Statistical testing of the trend provides evidence that the trend is "better" or ""worse" and did not occur due to random variation.

Trends are only calculated when 5 or more consecutive years of data are available.

Blank in the trend column indicates the trend is not calculated.

Trend Values

Getting better Trend is getting better and the improvement is statistically significant
Getting worse Trend is getting worse and the change is statistically significant
No trend Trend is not statistically significant

Blank cell - Not enough data to compute a trend

For the 2007 report, no trend is available for entry into prenatal care due to a change in the measurement of this indicator in 2004.
