Data Notes

NOTE: INCLUDES ALL ADULTS 18+.

Beginning in 2011, BRFSS data include both landline and cell phone respondent data along with a new weighting methodology called iterative proportional fitting, or raking. This graph is based on the new methodology. More details about these changes can be found at: http://health.utah.gov/opha/publications/brfss/Raking/Raking%20impact%202011.pdf.

These rates are crude rates, not age-adjusted, given that the Healthy People 2020 Objective is based on crude rates.
