*The definition includes (list of recommended CRC tests): 1) had a blood stool test within the past year, or 2) had a sigmoidoscopy within the past 5 years, or 3) had a colonoscopy within the past 10 years, or 4) had a stool DNA test within the past three years, or 5) had a virtual colonoscopy within the past five years.

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.

^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.
