Explanation of Symbols:

1. A= n '**' entry in the margin of error column indicates that either no sample observation= s or too few sample observations were available to compute a standard error and thus the margin of error. A statistical test= is not appropriate.

2. A= n '-' entry in the estimate column indicates that either no sample observations or too few sample observations were available to co= mpute an estimate, or a ratio of medians cannot be calculated because one or bo= th of the median estimates falls in the lowest interval or upper interval of= an open-ended distribution.

3. A= n '-' following a median estimate means the median falls in the lowest interval= of an open-ended distribution.

4. A= n '+' following a median estimate means the median falls in the upper interval = of an open-ended distribution.

5. A= n '***' entry in the margin of error column indicates that the median falls in the lowest interval or upper interval of an open= -ended distribution. A statistical test is not appropriate.

6. A= n '*****' entry in the margin of error column indicates that the estimate is controlled. A statistical test for sampling variability is not appropriate.

7. A= n 'N' entry in the estimate and margin of error columns indicates that data for this geographic area cannot be displayed because = the number of sample cases is too small.

8. A= n '(X)' means that the estimate is not applicable or not available.
