Definitions: This indicator includes children ages 2-17 who have dental insurance. Also asked of younger children if a tooth is present.

Data Source: California Health Interview Survey, "Current dental insurance geographical comparison," (Accessed July 6, 2009). Counties with fewer than 10 cases or those with statistically unstable values are not reported or those with statistically unstable values are not reported. Percents may not sum to 100% due to rounding.

Footnotes: County Groupings for 2005 & 2007 Data: The California Health Interview Survey produced county-level results for 41 counties, and area-level results for the remaining 17 counties with smaller populations, which were analyzed collectively in groupings of 3 to 7 counties. These county groupings included: Group 1: Del Norte, Siskiyou, Lassen, Trinity, Modoc, Plumas, Sierra; Group 2: Tehama, Glenn, Colusa; and Group 3: Tuolumne, Calaveras, Amador, Inyo, Mariposa, Mono, Alpine. Although the percentages are listed for each individual county, those percentages for the 17 counties in area-level groupings reflect the outcomes for the entire area rather than for the single county. County Groupings for 2001 & 2003 Data: The California Health Interview Survey produced county-level results for 33 counties, and area-level results for the remaining 25 counties with smaller populations, which were analyzed collectively in groupings of 2 to 6 counties. These county groupings included: Group 1: Tuolumne, Calaveras, Amador, Inyo, Mariposa, Mono and Alpine; Group 2: Siskiyou, Lassen, Trinity and Modoc; Group 3: Humboldt and Del Norte; Group 4: Tehama, Glenn and Colusa; Group 5: Nevada, Plumas and Sierra; Group 6: Mendocino and Lake; Group 7: Sutter and Yuba; and Group 8: Monterey and San Benito. Although the percentages are listed for each individual county, those percentages for the 25 counties in area-level groupings reflect the outcomes for the entire area rather than for the single county. Statistically Unstable (S/U): Data is not reported for statistically unstable values as identified in the California Health Interview Survey.

Data since 2007 is not available.

Asterisks* An asterisk indicates that data should be interpreted with caution. Asterisks were used to note low number of events (fewer than 10) or unstable data with large confidence intervals. Data or estimates with low numbers and large confidence intervals indicate that a data point may not be a true representation of the larger population. NA (Not Available) Data that are not available are noted as NA. The most frequent reasons for using the NA annotation include the unavailability of longitudinal data, data suppression from the original data source due to a low number event, or statistically unstable estimates.
