Back to Breast Feeding.

*Includes those in college or other post high school education
**SHCN=Children with Special Health Care Needs

***Asked of biological parents for children of all ages. (NOTE: in 2005 and 2006 this question was asked of children ages 12 and younger)

^Use caution in interpreting percentages with a numerator of less than 20. N = numerator, % = 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.
