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 calculated when either the white or black rate is zero (n/a indicated in the county ratio column).

All indicators in this profile report, except for indicators from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), are reporting rates based on the entire black population. Indicators from the BRFSS only include non-Hispanic blacks in the rates reported in this profile.

Cancer data are suppressed when there are 1-9 cases in a year.

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