*Data for this table were derived from questions 1,2,3,4 in the Disability, Quality of Life Module (page 51) of the BRFSS 2002 questionnaire.

^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.
