^ APNCU: Adequacy of Prenatal Care Utilization Index.
In 2015, SPARCS transitioned from ICD-9-CM to ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes. These two are not comparable, so ED and hospitalization data for 2016-and-forward should not be compared with earlier data.
The 2018 population estimates are also used to calculate rates for 2019 and 2020.
