* Updates for this data series are not available as of 2013. The CDC BRFSS program has discontinued these SMART county-level statistics, but is working on a separate project called Small-Area Estimates (SAE) to produce and release county-level public health data on a number of indicators; however, it is still being developed and the release date is uncertain. Once SAE is available, the data will not be comparable to SMART county-level data because both projects are based on different statistical models.
Years Available: 2002–2012

General Notes: A "-" note symbol indicates that the estimate is not available because the unweighted sample size for the denominator was < 50 or the Relative Standard Error (RSE) is > 0.3 or if the state did not collect data for that calendar year.
