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 (NYSDOH), 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, fetal deaths and marriages recorded in New York City from the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYCDOHMH) and on live births and deaths recorded outside of New York State to residents of New York State from other states and Canada.

Vital Event indicators for NYC geographical areas reported by NYSDOH and NYCDOHMH may be different since the former may include all NYC residents' events regardless of where they occurred and the latter reports only events to NYC residents that occurred in NYC. The indicators may also differ due to timing and/or completeness of data.

The counts of births and deaths may be influenced by specific reporting issues each year. The specific issues are reported in the technical notes of the Vital Statistics reports, in the Report Measures section.

All the vital statistics presented in this report are based on the county/borough of residence.
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. SPARCS measures provided are generated based on patient residence county at time of discharge. If county is not known, county is assigned based on zip code.
c Expanded BRFSS:
The Expanded BRFSS is a NYS county (regional) adult telephone (landline and cellphone) surveillance system 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).

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