Back to Folic Acid.

*Data for this table were derived from the folic acid question 'How often do you take this vitamin pill or supplement?'
and those respondents not taking multivitamin or folic acid containing pills considered non-daily user.

^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.
