Back to Exercise.

*This is a new recommendation (initiated in 2011) based on the type of physical activity respondents reported doing in the past month.

See Technical Notes for counties in Local Health Director, State and AHEC regions.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to changes in the weighting methodology and other factors, results from 2015 are NOT comparable to 2010
and earlier years.

***The estimate was suppressed because it did not meet statistical reliability standards. See BRFSS 2015 Annual Results Technical Notes for more details.

^Use caution in interpreting cell sizes less than 50, % = Percentage, C.I.(95%) = Confidence Interval (at 95 percent probability level).
Percentages are weighted to population characteristics and therefore cannot be calculated exactly from the numbers in this table.
