Key to Symbols

*For information on confidence intervals, see http://health.utah.gov/opha/IBIShelp/ConfInts.pdf.
**Data suppressed
The community is performing BETTER than the state, and the difference is statistically significant.
The community value is the same or ABOUT THE SAME as the state. Differences are not statistically significant.
The community is performing WORSE than the state, and the difference is statistically significant.
--Either the comparison value or confidence interval data are not available.
n/aNot Applicable: This indicator has no target direction.

The community value is considered statistically significantly different from the state value if the state value is outside the range of the community's 95% confidence interval. If the community's data or 95% confidence interval information is not available, a blank image will be displayed with the message, "missing information."

NOTE: In this report, the assessment of whether a community is better or worse is based solely on the statistical difference between the community and state values. When selecting priority health issues to work on, a community should take into account additional factors such as how much improvement could be made, the U.S. value, the statistical stability of the community number, the severity of the health condition, and whether the difference is clinically significant.
