Survey Sample

The survey is conducted using scientific telephone survey methods to collect data from Maryland adults age 18 and older who are not living in institutional settings such as nursing homes, military barracks, or prisons. Since 2011, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has weighted survey results by a statistical process called iterative proportional fitting (also called raking) to account for demographic differences between the survey sample and Maryland's adult population. Please visit for additional information about telephone data collection and weighting methodologies.


The denominator includes all survey respondents ages 18 years and older except those with missing, don't know and refused answers. If the query was limited to a particular sub-population-group, only those respondents are included in the denominator.

Results Grouped by Second indicator

When grouping results by a second indicator, the results displayed are percentages of second indicator that included/met criteria of first or primary indicator. Note the Query Criteria at top of page.
