  1. N = Total number if respondents in each category. n = number of cases in each category. Row % = proportion of cases in each category. The total number of individuals included in these analyses were somewhat lower than the number of individuals who responded to the questionnaire, because not all respondents answered all questions; there was missing information about smoking for 45 persons.
