Back to Healthy Days.

* Respondents who reported no mental and physical health problems in the past month were not asked this question, however, they are included in the 'None' category here.

^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.
