Back to Caregiving.

*These questions are asked only of caregivers. The results in this table are derived from the question [NC06Q07] on what the doctor
has said are the care recipient's major health problems. The question allows for multiple health problems to be reported.
Out of 827 respondents who reported one or more health problems, 638 reported only one health problem, 139 reported two health problems,
35 reported three health problems, and 15 reported more than three problems.

Developmental Disability Categories: Cerebral Palsy (CP), Down Syndrome, Other developmental disability
(e.g., spinal bifida)

***The estimate was suppressed because it did not meet statistical reliability standards. See BRFSS 2011 Annual Results Technical Notes for more details.
