Notes

  • Incidence data are provisional, November 2017.
  • Rates are per 1,000,000 children, age-adjusted to the 2000 US standard population, with 95% confidence intervals.
  • Rates based on fewer than 4 cases per year are unstable and should be used with caution.
  • NYC neighborhoods were defined in terms of Public Use Microdata Areas (PUMAs). PUMAs approximate NYC Community Districts (CDs).
