Back to Folic Acid.

*This question was asked only of respondents who reported taking vitamins but not multivitamins. Due to large number of responses, data for DNK/Not sure category are also presented.

^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.
