Air Quality Index The air quality index (AQI) is a measure used to indicate current and forecasted air quality conditions; it can also be used to help understand what local air quality conditions mean for human health. This query provides annual data for counties that have air quality monitors. Data can be queried as percent of monitored days by AQI category or maximum AQI value. Brandon Beagles

Congenital Cytomegalovirus (CMV) Infection and Hearing Loss Every year, more than 40,000 women in the US experience CMV infection during pregnancy. 1 in 200 babies is born with congenital CMV infection (cCMV) with 20% experiencing significant consequences including neurologic, vision or hearing damage. Congenital CMV is the leading cause of non-genetic pediatric hearing loss. In 2013, Utah passed a law mandating cCMV testing after failing newborn hearing screening. This data reflects compliance with this testing mandate. Stephanie McVicar

Newborn Hearing Screening When children are identified as deaf or hard-of-hearing (DHH) early and provided timely and appropriate intervention services, they have better outcomes than children identified later in life. All of the US states and territories strive to meet the national Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) 1-3-6 milestones. This data reflects Utah's achievement of these critical timelines: all infants undergo newborn hearing screening(s) before 1 months of age; those who fail undergo a diagnostic hearing test before 3 months of age; and, those diagnosed as DHH are enrolled in early interention services before 6 months of age.

Population for County and Local Health District (NCHS 2000-2020) The U.S. Census Bureau annually releases unbridged population estimates for five-year age groups and race at the county level. The Census Bureau does not release bridged-race or unbridged estimates by single-year of age at the county level due to concerns about the reliability of these estimates. However, these estimates are provided to the National Center for Health Statistics to meet programmatic needs such as the creation of age groupings that differ from the standard groupings used by the Census Bureau. Users of the single-year-of-age county-level bridged race population estimates should carefully consider the limited reliability of these estimates. Tong Zheng

Yes
Population for Utah Small Areas The population estimates were produced by staff in the Division of Data, Systems, and Evaluation. Linear interpolation of U.S. Census and ESRI ZIP Code data provided annual population estimates for ZIP Code areas by sex and age groups. All estimates were then weighted so that county totals matched the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) through a collaborative agreement with the U.S. Census Bureau (prior to 2020) or the Kem C. Gardner estimates (2020 and later). The county estimates which result from summing across all Small Areas within a county may not be an exact match with the estimates from the U.S. Census/Kem C. Gardner County level data set even through a weight has been applied to make the county level estimates match as close as possible. Tong Zheng

Years of Potential Life Lost Years of potential life lost (YPLL) can be used to distinguish the burden of premature death in populations. Unlike crude and standard age-adjusted measures, YPLL emphasizes underlying causes of premature death in a population. When calculating YPLL, greater weight is given to deaths at a younger age, while no weight is given to deaths at an age of 75 years or older. Deaths at younger ages are more likely due to preventable causes and can be decreased by intervention and education efforts. Brandon Beagles
