Data Notes:

Population - Rates are calculated using July 1 population estimates from the Florida Legislature, Office of Economic and Demographic Research which have been allocated by race based on information from the US Bureau of the Census. The population data for 2011-2021, along with rates affected by the population data, was updated on FLHealthCHARTS in November 2017. It is customary to periodically revise population estimates based on new information, such as a census or new mid-course census estimates for prior years. Revising these 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.

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

Hisp. indicates Hispanic
NH indicates Non-Hispanic

Blanks are shown if there is no hispanic or non-hispanic count available for the indicator.

Rate Ratios

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