*This question was asked of female respondents who reported not being pregnant at time of interview.

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

***Housing stress includes those who report always or usually worried about rent or mortgage payment.

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.
