NOTES: For 1997–1999 data, population estimates are 1990-based postcensal estimates as of July 1 and are adjusted for net underenumeration using the 1990 National Population Adjustment Matrix from the U.S. Census Bureau. Starting with 2000 data, population estimates are based on the 2000 census. See Appendix I, Population Census and Population Estimates. See related Table 89. Starting with Health, United States, 2005, data from 2001 and onwards use a revised weighting scheme. See Appendix I, National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey.
