Stroke Profile for Missouri Residents
Risk factors and prevalence rates for stroke among adults 18 years and older
‡ County Level Study is a large sample survey that provides Missouri county-specific rates.
† Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) annual survey provides state and regional rates. Note that for county profiles, rates are provided at the regional level.
*** Prevalence estimates for stroke are likely to be underestimated because they are based on a telephone survey of residences. Some persons who have had strokes may be unable to respond to a telephone survey; many reside in nursing homes or other institutions.
Mortality/PAS (Hospitalization and ER indicators)
Mortality rates are per year per 100,000 population and are age-adjusted to the U.S. 2000 standard population.
Hospitalization rates are per year per 10,000 population and are age-adjusted to the U.S. 2000 standard population.
Emergency room rates are per year per 1,000 population and are age-adjusted to the U.S. 2000 standard population.
Trends are available only if each 3-year period of the moving average has an average of 20 or more events.
Hospitalization Utilization indicators
@ Percentages for discharge status will not add to 100% because of transfers, unknown and other discharge dispositions.
* Fewer than 20 events in numerator; rate is unstable.
