*Functional disability status (Yes) is defined by an affirmative response to at least one of the six functional disability items in the Demographics section. See the 2017 BRFSS Technical Notes for details.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to changes in the weighting methodology and other factors, results from 2017 are NOT comparable to 2010
and earlier years.

***The estimate was suppressed because it did not meet statistical reliability standards. See BRFSS 2017 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.
