High risk conditions include diabetes, heart disease, lung disease, kidney disease, liver disease and cancer. Not all high-risk conditions for complications of influenza and pneumococcal disease can be ascertained by NHIS (for example, immunocompromised), and the sample size may be too small for some groups.
Percents are age adjusted to the 2000 standard population. Age-adjusted percents are weighted sums of age-specific percents. For a discussion on age adjustment, see Part A, Section 5 of Tracking Healthy People 2010.
Race categories have changed since 2001. Data for 2001 and later years may not be comparable to data from previous years.
