*This question was asked only of those who reported having a blood stool test
and those respondents who were not asked formed the NEVER category.

**History of Cardiovascular Disease: includes history of heart attack or coronary heart disease or stroke.

Use caution in interpreting cell sizes less than 50, % = 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.
