*Data from survey question 42. This question is about things that may have happened during the 12 months before your new baby was born.

For 2012, N.C. PRAMS only collected data on May through December births. Additionally, the overall weighted response ratewas 51%.

*** This estimate was suppressed because it did not meet statistical reliability standards

#Use caution in interpreting cell sizes less than 50.

Note: New data entry/data processing system introduced starting with 2012 PRAMS data.
N = Cell Size, % = Percentage, C.I.(95%) = Confidence Interval (at 95 percent probability level).
The percentages shown are weighted percentages, designed to reflect the entire population of North Carolina women having a live birth.
