Health Indicator Report of Health care - doctor checkup in the past year, adult
Regular health exams are important because they can identify problems before they start and can help find problems early, when treatment options are usually better. Receiving the recommended health services, screenings, and treatments increases the chances of living a longer, healthier life. Take charge of your health and make an appointment with your health care provider to discuss any screenings or tests you may need.
NotesThe percentages reported above have been produced by weighting the sample so that the results better represent the Hawaii population. Numerator and denominator data have been rounded to the nearest 100. In cases where the numerator is 49 or less, it is displayed as 50. Statistical Stability -- Relative standard error, or RSE, is the standard error expressed as a proportion of the point estimate. Stable is displayed when the RSE is below 0.30. Unstable is displayed when the RSE is 0.30-0.50. An unstable count or rate may fluctuate widely across time periods due to random variation (chance). Very unstable is displayed when the RSE is greater than 0.50. A very unstable count or rate should not be used to inform decision making. Problems with statistical instability typically occur when there is a small number of health events in a small population. You may combine years or otherwise increase the population size used in the query to achieve a more stable count or rate. Suppression of Estimates -- According to CDC BRFSS guidelines, a minimum of 50 respondents must answer the question in order for it to be reported. Where the number of respondents is below 30, or the RSE is greater than 0.30, ** will appear in the table.
