Anxiety/Depression/Stress: ED & Inpatient Visit Rate by Race/Ethnicity

City of Rochester, New York (2014 - 2016)

The following charts provide a targeted look at the rate of visits related to anxiety, depression and stress within the Focus Area*. With the exception of Latino ED visits and white inpatient visits, the rates are lower in the Focus Area than other SES 1 ZIP codes. This is notable given that many other outcomes and factors are worse within the Focus Area.

The Focus Area consists of eight high-poverty ZIP codes in the city of Rochester with particularly high concentration of African-Americans and Latinos. See a map of the Focus Area here.

Methodology note: The SES index ranking was developed by Common Ground Health and calculated using a variety of socioeconomic indicators from the American Community Survey including average income, poverty rates, education levels, housing value, and homeownership. Each ZIP code is assigned a socioeconomic (SES) index ranking from 1 to 5. The lower SES ZIP codes tend to have lower average income, higher poverty rates, lower prevalence of college degrees, etc.
