or were heavy drinkers (2 or more drinks per day for men, more than 1 drink per day for women).
No refers to respondents who said they did not drink in the past 30 days or who were not heavy drinkers and had no binge drinking episodes.

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

***The estimate was suppressed because it did not meet statistical reliability standards. See BRFSS 2020 Annual Results Technical Notes for more details.
