Back to Adverse Childhood Experience.

*Experience of sexual abuse is defined by an affirmative response to one or more of the three ACE module questions pertaining to:
(1) being sexually touched by an adult, (2) being forced to touch an adult sexually, (3) being forced to have sex with an adult.

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.
