Analytic notes: Please make note of the difference in years of data for suicide (2013–2017) versus hospitalizations and emergency department visits (2016–2017). Also, because of the way rates are compared, a small difference may be statistically significant while a larger one is not. A statistically significant difference means that the difference in rate between the county and state was very unlikely to be due to chance. For counties shown as higher or lower than the state rate, but not statistically significant, the difference in rate could be due to chance.

Additionally, rates were not calculated for counties with less than 10 events because low counts can produce unstable rates. A confidence interval is a range around a rate within which there is a 95% probability of containing the “true” value.

Email questions related to the data presented in the following tables to: DHSDPHDataResourceCenter@dhs.wisconsin.gov.
