A community water system serves at least 15 service connections used by year-round residents or regularly serves at least 25 year-round residents.
All of the population served counts are determined by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and provided to the PHDP on an annual basis at the water system level.
In order for a community water system to be considered receiving optimally fluoridated water, they must fall into one of the following categories for at least one month of the calendar year: 1. Adjusted (supplements water with fluoride) 2. Naturally fluoridated ( optimal fluoride levels naturally occurring in water) 3. Consecutive (buys water from an adjusted, natural fluoridated or fluoridated consecutive water system)
Numerator: Number of people on community water systems receiving optimally fluoridated water. Denominator: Number of people on community water systems.
The methodology of this measurement may have changed over time, specifically from 2013 forward.
Chart will display if there are at least three years of data.
Multi-year counts are a sum of the selected years, not an average.
Quartiles are calculated when data is available for at least 51 counties.
