  • a Some totals and proportions may not add exactly to 100% as a result of rounding.

  • b Estimate is based on fewer than 30 unweighted records.

  • c Race proportions do not total to 100%. The race category “other” is not included as a result of fewer than 30 unweighted observations during each study time period.
