Note: The counts in the table above are estimates. While confidence intervals cannot be calculated, it is suggested that users round cell values to the nearest hundred as an acknowledgement of the limitations of these estimates. The unrounded values are provided only for the computation of percentages and rates. Detail may not add to total due to rounding.
