PLEASE NOTE: Due to changes in the weighting methodology, results from 2011 are NOT comparable to previous years.

*** This estimate was suppressed because it did not meet statistical reliability standards; see N.C. CHAMP Technical Notes for more details

2Use caution in interpreting cell sizes less than 50. N = numerator, % = Percentage, C.I.(95%) = Confidence Interval (at 95 percent probability level).
