Back to Folic Acid.

* This question was asked only of respondents who reported taking vitamins. 'Not taking vitamins' category is added to the denominator so that the estimates are based on all respondents.

^Use caution in interpreting percentages with a numerator of less than 20. N = numerator, % = Percentage, C.I.(95%) = Confidence Interval (at 95 percent probability level).
Percentages are weighted to population characteristics and therefore cannot be calculated exactly from the numbers in this table.
