*Respondents who reported no mental and physical health problems in the past month were not asked this question, however, they are included in the 'None' category here.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to changes in the weighting methodology and other factors, results from 2013 are NOT comparable to 2010
and earlier years.

***The estimate was suppressed because it did not meet statistical reliability standards. See BRFSS 2013 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.
