Notes for this city

Life Expectancy at Birth: Computed for a range of years, 2003-2012.

Percent of Children Tested With Elevated Lead Levels: Note that there are not appropriate national data to use as a baseline for the percent of children tested with elevated blood lead level indicator. The city level data compiled here are in part based on number of children tested in a given jurisdiction. While the data are compiled with the same methodology, the percentages largely depend on who is being tested. Thus, city-to-city comparisons for this indicator should be made with caution due to differences in testing practices and policies that can affect elevated blood lead levels.

Records marked with a * value in the data table indicate that the data are suppressed due to small counts, inadequate sample size, or unreliable parameter estimates such as relative standard error or confidence intervals. The reasons cities have suppressed data vary by indicator.
