    Description of Gauge

    Description of the Gauge

    This graphic is based on the county data to the left. It compares the county value of this indicator to the state overall value.
    • Excellent = The county's value on this indicator is BETTER than the state value, and the difference IS statistically significant.
    • Watch = The county's value is BETTER than state value, but the difference IS NOT statistically significant.
    • Improvement Needed = The county's value on this indicator is WORSE than the state value, but the difference IS NOT statistically significant.
    • Reason for Concern = The county's value on this indicator is WORSE than the state value, and the difference IS statistically significant.

    The county value is considered statistically significantly different from the state value if the state value is outside the range of the county's 95% confidence interval. If the county's data or 95% confidence interval information is not available, a blank gauge image will be displayed with the message, "missing information."
    NOTE: The labels used on the gauge graphic are meant to describe the county's status in plain language. The placement of the gauge needle is based solely on the statistical difference between the county and state values. When selecting priority health issues to work on, a county should take into account additional factors such as how much improvement could be made, the U.S. value, the statistical stability of the county number, the severity of the health condition, and whether the difference is clinically significant.

Why Is This Important?

Chronic lower respiratory disease (CLRD) was the sixth leading cause of death in New Jersey and the US in 2020.

How Are We Doing?

In New Jersey, about 3,000 deaths each year are due to chronic lower respiratory disease (CLRD). In the total population and among each racial/ethnic group, males have a higher age-adjusted death rate than females. Among females, the rate is highest among Whites, but among males, the rate is highest among Blacks. County rates per 100,000 population (age-adjusted) range from a low of 15 in Hunterdon to a high of 48 in Salem.
