*Data from survey question 42. This question is about things that may have happened during the 12 months before your new baby was born.

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.
