Back to Anxiety & Depression.

*Includes those with moderate or higher levels of depression severity, as defined by researchers at the CDC.

^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.
