Data Notes(s)

*Includes persons identifying as ONLY American Indian/Alaskan Native
Where rates are based on a sample, no number (count) is available.
If blanks are shown on rates, American Indian data is not available.

This report relies on population estimates from the American Communities Survey, rather than The Florida Legislature, Office of Economic and Demographic Research. Given this, rates shown on this report are not comparable to rates shown elsewhere on FLHealthCHARTS.

Rate Ratios
The rate ratios in this report compare the American Indian rate to the total Florida rate.
A ratio of 2:1 means that the American Indian rate is two times the Florida rate. A ratio of 0.5:1 means that the American Indian rate is half of the Florida rate.
