a. Annual rate of change within each subgroup is estimated using linear regression model. Change in disparities is the difference in the annual rate of change between subgroup and reference group. See Chapter 10, Priority Populations, in the 2012 National Healthcare Disparities Report for reference.
b. Includes measures where subgroup received worse health care than reference group in most recent year.
