NOTE: SIG=Significant difference between 2003-2004 and 2002-2003 percentages; ns=not significant   at the 0.05 level
NOTE: Estimates are based on a survey-weighted hierarchical Bayes estimation approach.
a Difference between the 2003-2004 estimate and the 2002-2003 estimate is statistically significant at the 0.05 level.
b Difference between the 2003-2004 estimate and the 2002-2003 estimate is statistically significant at the 0.10 level.
