Back to Disability.

In 2011, the definition for disability status changed: only the 2 questions in the BRFSS Core Questionnaire have been used to define the North Carolina disability population. In previous years, the NC disability population was defined by 4 screener questions. These included the 2 core questions and the 2 North Carolina questions on self-perceived disability and trouble learning, remembering, or concentrating.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to changes in the weighting methodology and other factors, results from 2012 are NOT comparable to 2010
and earlier years.

***The estimate was suppressed because it did not meet statistical reliability standards. See BRFSS 2012 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.
