* Asked only of mothers who reported that they had a prior live birth.

The overall weighted response rate in 2014 was 55%. It fell short of the 60% rate that PRAMS has regarded as the epidemiologically valid threshold.

*** This estimate was suppressed because it did not meet statistical reliability standards

#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.
