What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the average annual age-adjusted hospitalization rate due to urinary tract infections per 10,000 population aged 18 years and older.
Why this is important: 
Urinary tract infections (UTI) are a serious health problem affecting millions of people each year. According to the National Kidney and Urologic Diseases Information Clearinghouse (NKUDIC), infections of the urinary tract are the second most common type of infection in the body, accounting for about 8.3 million doctor visits each year. Women are especially prone to UTIs, and one woman in five develops a UTI during her lifetime. Infections generally begin in the urethra, but may migrate up to the bladder and kidneys.
Technical Note:  The distribution is based on data from 67 Florida counties.
Rates were calculated using population figures from the 2010 U.S. Census. Rates based on fewer than 10 hospitalizations are unstable and are not reported. Rates for zip codes with a population of less than 300 are not reported.
