Depending on the county and the specific indicator, percentages and rates are sometimes computed using a small number of cases. Since measurement error is potentially higher when the number of events is small and the resulting rates/percentages are not as stable as those based on larger numbers, caution should be exercised in using data based on limited numbers.
