"Don't know" and "Refused" responses were eliminated from the denominator.
Rates are age-adjusted using 8 age groups. 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 methodology utilizes additional
demographic information (such as education, race, and marital status) in the weighting procedure. Both of these methodology
changes were implemented to account for an increased number of U.S. households without landline phones and an under-representation
of certain demographic groups that were not well-represented in the sample. More details about these changes can be found
