Figure 13 is titled "Rates of Serious Mental Illness among Adults Aged 18 or Older, by Age: 2002 and 2003." It is a bar graph, with the following note below the graph: "Statistically significant differences (at 0.05 level) between 2002 and 2003 are denoted by '+.'" The horizontal axis represents age in years, and the vertical axis represents the percentage with past year serious mental illness.
