    Numerator Number of emergency department visits due to asthma (Number of emergency department visits for which the primary diagnosis was coded as 493.xx)
    Denominator NCHS Vintage Bridged-Race Postcensal Population Estimates (same as DHMH Vital Statistics Administration pop estimates)
    Reporting Threshold (*) Numerator <50 OR Denominator <1000. Rate not reported if below threshold.
    Calculation (Numerator/Denominator)*100,000= Single-year calculation age-adjusted to 2000 U.S. standard population

    The methodology used to identify race in the HSCRC data files changed in 2013. Therefore, data reports in 2013 and beyond may not be comparable to data reports released in earlier years.

    Data are of Maryland residents seeking care at a Maryland hospital. Data may be underreported, especially in counties contiguous to DC.
