The 59 indicators in the report were calculated according to guidelines published by the Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs (AMCHP). For each indicator, a brief description of the topic, definition, connection to the Life Course Theory, and data source are provided. When possible, a state-level estimate for each indicator was calculated and Florida’s status compared to the nation. The indicators were then stratified by race/ethnicity when available and appropriate. In total, there were 28 state and national data sources used to calculate the 59 indicators. Estimates are from the most recent year available for the data source at the time the indicator report was developed.
