        • DENOMINATOR DEFINITION:
        • Data from the U.S. Bureau of the Census were used to estimate the total number of children in each health care market.

        • NUMERATOR DEFINITION:
        • Data from the American Community Survey: 2006-2010 were used to estimate child poverty in each health care market.

        • ADJUSTMENTS:
        • Utilization rates were adjusted using the indirect method for age (age categories 0-2, 3-4, 5-9, 10-14, and 15-17), sex, and insurance type (Medicaid or commercial plan) using the regional population as the standard. HEDIS measures, demographic measures, and physician workforce measures were not adjusted.
