PLEASE NOTE: Due to changes in the weighting methodology, results from 2011, 2012 and 2013-2014 are NOT comparable to results from 2010 and earlier.

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

1Asked only for children 1 year and older. NOTE: Children without asthma are included in the denominator to estimate current asthma prevalence.

2Use caution in interpreting cell sizes less than 50. 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.

39th-12th grade includes those in college or other post high school education.

4Health Insurance categories: PRIVATE = State Employee Health Plan, Blue Cross/Blue Shield of NC, or other private health insurance plan purchased from an employer or directly from insurance company.
PUBLIC = Medicaid, Carolina ACCESS, Health Check, or NC Health Choice. OTHER = the military, CHAMPUS, TRI CARE, Indian Health Services or other type not otherwise listed.
