Query Criteria for the Post-partum depression (2009-2011) Measure
|Among new mothers, those experiencing post-partum depression (2009-2011) Filter:
||2011, 2010, 2009|
|Data Grouped By:||Year|
Mothers who responded that they felt hopeless, down, depressed, sad, or slowed down to the question: "Below is a list of feelings and experiences that women sometimes have after childbirth. Read each item to determine how well it describes your feelings and experiences." Question is only asked in 2009-2011.
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 estimate).
"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.
Suppression of Estimates
According to CDC guidelines, a minimum of 30 respondents (women with a recent live birth) must answer a question in order for it to be reported. Where the number of respondents is below 30, ** will appear in the table.
Weighted Survey Data
The percentages reported above have been produced by weighting the sample so that the results better represent the population of Hawaii.

PRAMS uses a two-stage, stratified random sampling method to identify the sample. The sampling frame is drawn from birth certificates. Each month, approximately 200 women who are 2 to 4 months post-delivery are chosen. The sample includes only residents of Hawaii who had a recent live birth in the state. The results are weighted to ensure accurate representation of the population.
Average Annual Population Estimate
The denominator includes all survey respondents 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%.
