PLEASE NOTE: Due to changes in the weighting methodology and other factors, results from 2020
are NOT comparable to 2010 and earlier years.

Sub-Group estimates have been suppressed because they do not meet statistical reliability standards.

^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.
