    Map and analytical framework developed in collaboration with Punam Ohri-Vachaspati, PhD, RD, Professor, Arizona State University.

    Notes: "Metro counties" are those contained within Metropolitan Statistical Areas, as delineated by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB); each of which contains at least one Census Bureau-delineated urbanized area of 50,000 or more people. "Small town counties" are those contained within Micropolitan Statistical Areas, as delineated by OMB, each containing at least one Census Bureau-delineated urban cluster of between 10,000 and 50,000 people. "Rural counties" consist of non-metropolitan and non-micropolitan areas. Delaware, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and the District of Columbia have no counties defined as "small town" or "rural". Connecticut and Hawaii have no counties defined as "rural". Margins of error were calculated based on a 90% confidence level.
