Notes on Population data
Population data are used as the denominators for all rates in MassCHIP except for Infant Deaths which use the Births file as the denominator. The population data used for a given rate depends on the year of the numerator:
MDPH Estimates for 2006-2009 (only available at the state level)
Census Counts for 2010 (available at the city/town level) Population data may also be present in this report as Counts and Percentages. These data are Census counts for 2010 or sample data for 2000. Any population data that have more detail than geography, age, sex and or Race/Hispanic ethnicity are from the selected sample data for 2000 from the U.S. Census Bureau Summary File 3 (SF3).
Limitations of Small Numbers
Cells in some tables in MassCHIP reports, and particularly those specific to individual cities and towns, contain small numbers. In general, rates and proportions based upon less than five observations are suppressed (specific protocols differ by data sets and are noted on the relevant reports). Whether or not the small numbers are suppressed, rates and trends based upon small numbers should be interpreted cautiously.
Note on NA
MassCHIP marks cells with the tag "NA" if one or more of the following is true:
Differences with Previously Published Data
Numbers and rates in MassCHIP reports may differ slightly from those contained in previous reports or other publications. These differences may be due to file updates; slight variations in coding schemes used in categorizing the data; differences in the formulas used in calculating rates; and the re-calculating of rates using updates of population estimates from the Massachusetts Institute for Social and Economic Research (MISER).
Note on Time Period
Counts for most data sets are cumulative for the given Calendar or Fiscal year. Children in Foster Care (DSS), WIC, Child Care Services (OCCS) and Department of Transitional Assistance (DTA) data sets give point in time 'snapshot' counts. These are counts taken at a specified point during the year.
