*Asked of veterans who ever served on active duty in the United States Armed Forces, either in the regular military
or in a National Guard or military reserve unit.

**History of cardiovascular disease includes history of heart attack or coronary heart disease or stroke.

These questions have not been asked in 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.
