Note: Estimates are based on a survey-weighted hierarchical Bayes estimation approach, and the prediction intervals are
generated by Markov Chain Monte Carlo techniques.

1This estimate is the weighted average of the hierarchical Bayes estimates across all States and the District of Columbia and
typically is not equal to the direct sample-weighted estimate for the Nation.
