FAQs: Explanations Who decided what data to collect? How recent are the data? How are data presented? Some county comparison maps do not provide data for every county. Why? I dont have Microsoft PowerPoint. Can I still view the PowerPoint presentations? I need the data, not a graph. Where do I get the data? Im not sure how to interpret the numbers Im seeing. Where can I find data definitions? Some data are not available at the county level. Why? What does it mean when it says BRFSS data are not weighted for population characteristics? Why are BRFSS data not reported for Hispanics?

Grantsmanship Data Needs Overview of the State: Tennessee has a population of 5,900,962 (2004 data). Of those reporting only one race, 82% were white, 15% black, 1% Asian, and 1% other. Less than 3% of the people living in the state in 2000 were foreign-born, although the state has experienced a 169% increase from 1990. Approximately 40% are of Latin American origin. 2003 data from the American Community Survey show 135,669 persons identifying themselves as being of Hispanic origin.
Grants Tennessee is a diverse state geographically, culturally, and economically. The state covers 41,220 square miles and is about 500 miles from east to west and 100 miles from north to south. There are mountains in the east, hills in the middle section, and the western third is relatively flat. The state is divided into 95 counties, each with a health department located in the county seat. Slightly more than a quarter of all Tennesseans live in the four largest cities (Memphis, Nashville, Chattanooga, and Knoxville). Just over 68% of the population lives in the states seven metropolitan areas (MSAs), five of which are in the eastern two-thirds of the state. The most sparsely populated counties are primarily in rural middle and west Tennessee.
Grants U.S. Census data show that 14% of Tennesseans live in poverty compared to 12.5% nationally. According to the 2005 Kids Count Data Book, in 2003 20% of children in Tennessee were living in poverty, and 33% of children were living in single parent households (as compared to U.S. figures of 18% and 30%). Eight percent of children were without health insurance, much better than the national level of 12%. Yet Tennessees children are not faring well.
Grants Birth Population: In 2004 there were 79,572 births in Tennessee, an increase over the past five years, reflecting a growing overall population. Of the total births, 78% were white (61,899), 20% black (15,787), and 2% other races (1,886). These percentages are reflective of the racial spread of the population of reproductive age women (78% white, 19% black). 2000 census data show that females aged 10-44 make up 25.4% of the total population. Of the total 2004 births, 12.9% were to women aged 10-19 (10,260).
Grants In 2004, there were 5,848 Hispanic births (7.4% of total births), an increase of 905 births or 18% over the number for 2003 (4,943) and indicative of the states increasing Latino population.
