What do the green and red numbers in my report mean?

Table figures are color coded red or green to signify an area’s performance relative to a benchmark. Green indicates more favorable performance while red indicates less favorable performance. Benchmarks vary across indicators, and represent Healthy People 2020 objectives (when directly comparable) or state averages. Figures are not color coded for indicators with no discernable positive or negative outcome (age, population density, race, etc).
