The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) disseminates information on a broad range of health topics through diverse publications. These publications must rely on clear and transparent presentation standards that can be broadly and efficiently applied. Standards are particularly important for large, cross-cutting reports where estimates cannot be individually evaluated and indicators of precision cannot be included alongside the estimates. This report describes the NCHS Data Presentation Standards for Proportions. The multistep NCHS Data Presentation Standards for Proportions are based on a minimum denominator sample size and on the absolute and relative widths of a confidence interval calculated using the Clopper-Pearson method. Proportions (usually multiplied by 100 and expressed as percentages) are the most commonly reported estimates in NCHS reports.
