    144144                                in 5-year age groups.  Prior to 2006, municipality population estimates
    145145                                were only available for the total population except in Census years.  The
    146                                 <a href="http://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/acs/">American Community Survey</a> now provides municipality population estimates by age group, thereby allowing the calculation of age-adjusted rates for large municipalities.  <a href="http://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/acs/guidance/estimates.html">Five-year estimates</a> are used in NJSHAD to provide the most accurate rates possible.

     148                                Extreme care should be taken when using these rates for decision-making
     149                                because rates based on smaller numbers can fluctuate widely for year to year. Reviewing multiple years of data and/or using 3- or 5-year average rates
     150                                is recommended.
