*Respondents who reported no mental and physical health problems in the past month were not asked this question, however, they are included in the 'None' category here.

NOTE: For AHEC Regions, results for Area L are least reliable due to small sample size.

^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.
