NOTE: The percentages reflect weighted data to account for complex survey design.

  • aExcludes parents who did not know their daughters' school type (n = 2 in 2008) or whose daughters were not in school (n = 2 in 2008; n = 1 in 2009). Because of the small number of parents reporting their daughters were home schooled (n = 18 in 2008; n = 19 in 2009; n = 13 in 2010), analyses combined data from private- and home-schooled daughters.

  • bMost caregivers (94%) reported being parents of the index children. Among the original BRFSS respondents who did not complete the CHAMP survey, 95% were also parents to the index children.
