* Data in this table were derived from health insurance question and only those under age 65 included

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.
