Query Criteria for the Daily frequency of bean consumption Measure
||2015, 2013, 2011|
|Data Grouped By:||County|
How many times did you eat beans or lentils? Question is only asked in odd-numbered years.
Statistical stability, reported in the data table, is based on a statistic
called the "Relative Standard Error," or RSE, which is the standard error
expressed as a proportion of the point estimate (e.g., 30% of the point
"Stable" is displayed when the relative standard error (RSE) is below 0.30
and the count or rate may be considered stable.
"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. 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.
"No Variance" is displayed when there is no record, or only one record in the sample population, for the selected indicator and demographics.
Weighted Survey Data
The percentages reported above have been produced by weighting
the sample so that the results better represent the Hawaii

The survey is conducted using scientific telephone survey methods. Both cell phones and land lines are included. Excluded are adults living in group quarters with a central phone system such as college dormitories, nursing homes, military barracks, and prisons. Results have been weighted to the adult population by age, gender, race, education, marital status, home ownership, telephone source (landline versus cell phone), and county of residence.
Average Annual Population Estimate
The denominator includes all survey respondents ages 18 years and older except those
with missing, don't know and refused answers. If the query was limited to a particular
sub-population-group, only those respondents are included in the denominator.
Asymmetric Confidence Intervals
The confidence bounds are asymmetric. They do not extend evenly above and
below the percentage, especially as the percentage gets close to 0% or 100%.
