Symbol Meaning
* Fewer than 10 events in the numerator, therefore the rate or percentage is unstable
s Data are suppressed. The data do not meet the criteria for confidentiality
~ White non-Hispanic, Black (including Hispanic), Asian (including Hispanic, excluding Pacific Islanders), and Hispanic
NA Data do not meet the criteria for statistical reliability or data quality, or data not available

NOTE:
Estimates for hospitalization-related indicators among the Hispanic population may be overestimated due to anomalies in patient ethnicity data.
Estimates for hospitalization-related indicators among the non-Hispanic population may be underestimated due to anomalies in patient ethnicity data.
