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.

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.

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.

For the following indicators: Congenital Syphilis Rate, Gonorrhea Rate, Chlamydia Rate and Syphilis Rate, the rates stratified by race/ethnicity are not available due to the high percentage of cases with unknown/missing information.

For the following indicator: congenital syphilis rate, rates broken down by sex are not provided due to the low number of reported cases.
