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.

N/C=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).
