*Respondents who reported having a hysterectomy were excluded from both numerator and denominator. This question was asked of female respondents who reported ever having a Pap smear and those respondents who were not asked formed the NEVER category.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to changes in the weighting methodology and other factors, results from 2018 are NOT comparable to 2010
and earlier years.

***The estimate was suppressed because it did not meet statistical reliability standards. See BRFSS 2018 Annual Results Technical Notes for more details.
