Notes: Estimates and standard errors have been weighted either to State or Nation as appropriate. Sample size varies across asthma measures because of varying applicability of questions to respondents and refusals.

DNC=Data Not Collected

DNS=Data Not Sufficient for Release (sample less than 50)

1 Indicates that the State estimate is not significantly different from the best in class average (P<0.05).
2 Indicates that the State estimate is statistically better than the national average (P<0.05).
3 Indicates that the State estimate is statistically worse than the national average (P<0.05).
