Data Source: UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, California Health Interview Survey custom tabulation (Mar. 2018).
Footnote: These estimates are based on a survey of the population and are subject to both sampling and nonsampling error. Data from 2013-2014 and later may not be comparable with data from earlier years because of changes in question wording. The notation S refers to data that have been suppressed because the sample size was lower than 50, the estimate was less than 0.1%, or the data were suppressed by the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research. N/A means that data are not available. For more information about the California Health Interview Survey, see http://healthpolicy.ucla.edu/chis.
