Back to Derived Variables and Risk Factors.

*Respondents who reported having hysterectomy were excluded from both numerator and denominator.
This question was asked of female respondents who reported ever having a Pap test, and those who
never had a Pap test were included in the NO category.

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.
