Data Notes:

a Vital Records (Vital Statistics):
Vital Event Registration:
New York State consists of two registration areas, New York City and New York State Exclusive of New York City (also referred as Rest of State). New York City (NYC) includes the five counties of Bronx, Kings (Brooklyn), New York (Manhattan), Queens and Richmond (Staten Island); the remaining 57 counties comprise New York State Exclusive of New York City. The Bureau of Vital Records, New York State Department of Health, processes data from live birth, death, fetal death and marriage certificates recorded in New York State Exclusive of New York City. Through a cooperative agreement, the New York State Department of Health receives data on live births, deaths, and fetal deaths recorded in New York City from the New York City Department of Health and on live births and deaths recorded outside of New York State to residents of New York State from other states and Canada.
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 NYS county (regional) non-institutional adult telephone-based surveillance survey that collects self-reported health conditions and behaviors related to early mortality and morbidity. This system is based on the annual collaborative state based surveillance project administered and supported by the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (CDC), Division of Population Health, Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS). Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS)
d New York City Community Health Survey (CHS):
The New York City Community Health Survey (CHS) is a NYC Burough adult telephone survey conducted by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene that is also based on the CDC BRFSS surveillance survey system design.

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