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).
