Back to Fruits and Vegetables.

*NOTE: The fruit and vegetable (FV) questions for 2011 have completely changed from the FV questions
used in past years. The computation of 5+ FV servings per day in this table includes servings of beans, which
is a new survey item in the FV modul e for 2011.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to changes in the weighting methodology and other factors, results from 2011 are NOT comparable to previous years.

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

^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.
