*Data from survey question 35. This question is about things that may have happened during the 12 months before your new baby was born. For each item, circle Y (Yes) if it happened to you or circle N (No) if it did not.

#Use caution in interpreting cell sizes less than 50.
N = Cell Size, % = Percentage, C.I.(95%) = Confidence Interval (at 95 percent probability level).
The percentages shown are weighted percentages, designed to reflect the entire population of North Carolina women having a live birth.
