Rates are calculated using the bridged-race population estimates obtained from the National Center for Health Statistics available online at www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/bridged_race/data_documentation.htm#vintage2011. Numbers are subject to change as files are updated.  *Counts less than five are suppressed.
