Data Note(s)


FLHealthCharts.gov is provided by the Florida Department of Health, Division of Public Health Statistics and Performance Management.

  • Quality and use indicators are based, in part, on The Commonwealth Fund’s November 2021 report titled “Achieving Racial and Ethnic Equity in U.S. Health Care”.

  • Rate ratios in this report compare rates of two populations. For example, if the ratio of the black rate to the white rate is 2:1 it would mean that the black rate is two times the white rate. A ratio of 0.5:1 would mean that the black rate is half of the white rate. Rate ratios are not calculated when a rate is zero, and the county ratio cell will contain "N/A".

  • All indicators in this profile, except the indicators from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), report rates based on the entire black population and entire white population. Indicators from the BRFSS only include non-Hispanic blacks and non-Hispanic whites in the rates reported. These indicators all begin with the word "Adults".

  • Health equity measures are based, in part, on the Prevention Institute's report for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation in June 2015 titled "Measuring What Works to Achieve Health Equity: Metrics for the Determinants of Health".

  • When the Racial Residential Segregation Index is less than 0.3 the county’s population is “well integrated.” Values between 0.3 and 0.6 indicate the county’s population is “moderately segregated.” Values above 0.6 indicate the county’s population is “very segregated."

  • Income inequality is an index that ranges from 0 to 1. Zero indicates a perfect distribution of income where everyone receives an equal share. One indicates an imperfect distribution of income where only one or a group of recipients receive all the income.

  • Some indicators that are important to understanding the context of health disparities are displayed even when race and ethnicity breakouts are not available. In these cases, only the totals are provided.
