Data Notes:

The rate ratios in this report compare the black rate to the white rate. A ratio of 2:1 would mean that the black rate is two times the white rate. A ratio of 0.5:1 would mean that the black rate is half of the white rate. Ratios are not calulated when either the white or black rate is zero (n/a indicated in the county ratio column).

(u) Rates based on fewer than 5 events are considered unstable. Use caution when interpreting these rates.

Blanks are shown if there is no white or black count available for the indicator.
