Back to Derived Variables and Risk Factors.

Due to small number of respondents no further breakdowns are available. For cell sizes less than 50, the results are not reliable

^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.
