Notes for this city

Opioid-Related Unintentional Drug Overdose Mortality Rate: This indicator is not exclusive of other drugs that may be included in multiple cause of death fields, such as heroin (T40.1), cocaine (T40.5), benzodiazepines (T42.4), psychostimulants with abuse potential (T43.6), other and unspecified narcotics (T40.6), or drugs not elsewhere classified (T50.9). Morphine and heroin are metabolized similarly. This may result in the over-reporting of drug poisonings associated with the effects of opioid analgesics.

For some indicators, Harris County level data was provided: Drug abuse-related hospitalization rate, opioid-related unintentional drug overdose mortality rate, all types of cancer mortality rate, female breast cancer mortality rate, lung cancer mortality rate, diabetes mortality rate, heart disease mortality rate, AIDS diagnoses rate, HIV diagnoses rate, HIV-related mortality rate, persons living with HIV/AIDS, pneumonia and influenza mortality rate, firearm-related mortality rate, motor vehicle mortality rate, suicide rate, all cause mortality rate, infant mortality rate, percent of low birth weight babies, percent of mothers under age 20.

For some indicators, Houston-Baytown-Sugarland Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) data was provided: Percent of adults who binge drank, percent of high school students who binge drank, percent of adults who are obese, percent of adults who received seasonal flu shot, percent of adults 65 and over who received pneumonia vaccine.

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.
