Back to Derived Variables and Risk Factors.

*Data for this table were derived from the first three folic acid questions. See the 2004 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.
