s: Data do not meet reporting criteria

~ The SPARCS data do not include visits/discharges by people who sought care from hospitals outside of New York State, which may lower numbers and rates for some counties, especially those which border other states.

County of residence was assigned based on ZIP code for cases in which patient county of residence was listed as unknown or missing, but a valid NY ZIP code was present.
