*NOTE: The fruit and vegetable questions for 2011 and 2013 have changed from the FV questions used in in 2009 and earlier years.

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.
