*Data in this table were derived from the alcohol consumption questions.
No = Respondents reported having LESS than or equal to 2 drinks/day for MALES or LESS than or equal to 1 drink/day for FEMALES.
Yes = Respondents reported having MORE than 2 drinks/day for MALES or MORE than 1 drink/day for FEMALES.

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.
