*Body mass index is computed as weight in kilograms divided by height in meters squared:(kg/ m2). BMI is
an intermediate variable used in calculating these measures. Normal/Underweight=BMI less than 25.0, Overweight=BMI
greater than or equal to 25.0 .
#Use caution in interpreting data for total respondents less than 50. N = Cell Size, NH = Non-Hispanic, %
= Percentage, C.I.(95%) = Confidence Interval (at 95 percent probability level).
Percentages are weighted to population characteristics.
Unless stated differently above, Missing, 'Don't know', and Refused responses are excluded.
