Notes:

* Figures for median household income and households paying 30% or more of their income for housing were collected from survey items asking about income during 1999. Elsewhere on the Compass site these figures are reported as 1999 data, but they are listed here in the 2000 column for comparison purposes.

** Babies with a birth weight under 2,500 grams (5lbs, 8 oz) are considered to be low birth weight.

"N/A" indicates that data are unavailable, an estimate is unreliable, or data are suppressed because too few cases were recorded in the time period.
