*Asked of mothers that reported that they did not try to get pregnant and were using at least one method of birth control to keep from getting pregnant at the time of conception.

^Detailed tables are available for the following birth control types: Birth Control Pill, Condoms and Withdrawal.

The overall weighted response rate in 2014 was 55%. It fell short of the 60% rate that PRAMS has regarded as the epidemiologically valid threshold.

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