According to the data source, “hospitalization rates calculated with a small number of events or population size are statistically unstable. They exhibit wide confidence intervals indicative of great variability. Data suppression rules are enforced so that the data presented are reliable.  For demographic or geographic subgroups where there is less than or equal to 20 hospitalizations or less than 5000 population, asthma hospitalization rates are not presented. In addition, to protect the identity of persons who have been hospitalized, counts of less than 5 are suppressed with an "S".
