* Respondents who reported having hysterectomy were excluded from both numerator and denominator.* This question was asked of female respondents who reported ever having a Pap smear and those respondents who were not asked formed NEVER category.

^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.
