Appendix D: Data Tables


This appendix provides detailed data tables for all measures analyzed for the 2007 National Healthcare Disparities Report. Tables are included for measures discussed in the main text of the report as well as for other measures that were examined but not included in the main text.


Select each table name to link to appropriate information. Unless otherwise specified in tables, data are not age adjusted and include all ages. Unless specific age groups are specified, children include individuals age 0-17 and adults include individuals age 18 and older.

Because measures that do not support detailed tables are excluded from the list below, the numbering is not completely sequential. Summary tables for quality of and access to health care core measures are included in chapters 2 and 3, respectively, of the report.
