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 and emergency department (ED) visits are collected through the hospital data system. Up through the third quarter of 2015, each hospitalization and ED visit received an ICD-9-CM primary diagnosis code, and may have also received additional ICD-9-CM diagnosis codes to further describe the hospitalization or ED visit. CHIR used the ICD-9-CM primary diagnosis code and up to 14 additional ICD-9-CM diagnosis codes from the hospital data system to generate tables and charts to describe hospitalizations and ED visits up through 2014.

Starting in the fourth quarter of 2015, the hospital data system changed to using the ICD-10-CM for diagnoses. CHIRS used the ICD-10-CM primary diagnosis codes and up to 24 additional ICD-10-CM codes from the hospital data system to generate tables and charts to describe hospitalizations and ED visits in 2016 and after.

CHIRS does not include hospitalizations and ED visits in 2015, as the ICD codes changed part way through the year.
c New York State and County Safety Data Reports:
New York State motor vehicle accident data are compiled by the NYS Department of Motor Vehicles from accident reports submitted by police agencies and by motorists. Data are from the alcohol-related accident summary report.
