* S.S. = Statistical Significance: s+ indicates that the county estimate is greater than the statewide rate; s-, less than the statewide rate; a blank, not different from the statewide rate.
** % based on less than 50 respondents total or fewer than 12 in any one of the three age groups may not accurately reflect behavior of the entire county.
NOTE: Age adjustment is based on three age groups: 18-34; 35-54; and 55+, per U.S. Standard Million Population.
