  • Description:
    Static display of Florida’s distribution of rural versus urban and high versus low death rate, where stroke centers are in relation to urban versus rural and low versus high primary stroke centers, and age-adjusted stroke mortality rates, by quintile, in urban versus rural counties in 2017. Data sources: Florida’s Geospatial Open Data Portal 2017, 2018; Rural Health Information Hub 2017; US Census Bureau, 2010; Florida Geographic Data Library, 2012. This is a display of Florida’s distribution of rural versus urban and high versus low death rate, where stroke centers are in relation to urban versus rural and low versus high primary stroke centers, and age-adjusted stroke mortality rates, by quintile, in urban versus rural counties in 2017. Primary stroke centers are rare in the panhandle of the state, almost exclusively in rural counties. These counties also generally had stroke age-adjusted death rates in the 2 highest quintiles, ≤ 48.0 and 58.7 deaths per 100,000 population. The state’s northeastern, central, and southern counties are almost all urban counties. Primary stroke centers were much more common in the central part of the state, particularly along the central west coast. Stroke centers were also more common along the southeastern coast. Death rates in these areas most commonly fell in the 3 lowest quintiles, ≤ 32.0, 37.4, and 43.0 deaths per 100,000 population.
