This review is available for
all cases. There is also a review for a subset of the data
that includes cases aged:18-64. The Progress indicators are based on the percent [%] change from 2009 to 2011. Green arrows indicate "positive" change while red indicates "negative" change. The direction of the arrow indicates if the rate is trending up or down. Therefore, a green arrow pointing down means the rate is dropping, but the drop is positive whereas a red arrow pointing down indicates the rate is dropping, but the drop is negative. Trendline graphs include comparison data for Buchanan County, Northwest MO Region, The State of Missouri and US rates where applicable.
