  • a A total of 91% of whom are white.

  • b Includes those who have benefits from the county allowing access to public clinic providers at either very low cost or no cost.

  • c Including any of the following: asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, HIV, hepatitis C, cystic fibrosis, diabetes, endocarditis, tuberculosis, prostatitis, chronic urinary tract infection, chronic osteomyelitis, peptic ulcer disease, chronic pyelonephritis, or cancer.

  • d The multivariate regression model included all factors with a P value of <0.20 in univariate analyses. Results shown in boldface type have a P value of <0.20 in univariate analyses and a P value of <0.05 in multivariate analyses; where the univariate data are shown in boldface type but there are no corresponding multivariate data, the results were nonsignificant in multivariate analyses.

  • e GED, general educational development (high school equivalency test).

  • f reference, reference category in the regression analysis.
