Data notes:

a Vital Records:
Information is collected from birth, death and fetal death certificates. Records with missing information for the indicator of interest are excluded when calculating rates and percentages for that indicator. Population based rates use population estimates provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. ICD-10 codes are used for cause of death.
b Statewide Planning and Research Cooperative System-SPARCS:
Information about hospitalizations is collected through the hospital inpatient discharge data system. Each hospitalization receives an ICD-9 code at discharge that indicates the primary reason for the hospitalization. There are also up to 14 other diagnosis codes recorded to further describe the hospitalization. Statistics presented in these tables are based on the primary diagnosis unless otherwise noted. This data system does not include information about events that did not result in a hospitalization, such as cases that were only treated in a hospital emergency room. Numbers and rates are based on the number of hospitalizations that occurred and not the number of individuals who were hospitalized.
c Expanded BRFSS:
The Expanded BRFSS is a telephone-based survey of adults 18 years of age or older conducted by the New York State Department of Health. The survey is based on the National Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and collects information on self-reported health-related behaviors in New York State counties. The most recent survey was conducted between July 2008 and June 2009 and collected data in 57 New York State counties and New York City. Because the Expanded BRFSS only presents data for New York City as a whole, indicator data for the counties of Bronx, Kings, New York, Queens and Richmond are from the 2008 New York City Community Health Survey . The New York City Community Health Survey (CHS) is a telephone survey conducted by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene that is also based on the BRFSS.

** The standard population used for age adjustment was the 2000 U.S. population.
