  2. aAfter 2007–2008, the CCHS retired the numbered cycles (Cycle 1.1, 2.1, 3.1, 4.1) and used the years of data collection to identify the cycle instead. Both the survey year and numbered cycle (where relevant) are provided
  3. bCounty-level prevalence estimates are weighted using the CCHS share file weights
  4. cRaw estimates taken as the proportion of respondents with an affirmative response for the behavioural risk factor aggregated to the micro area (Dissemination Area). One-tailed test obtained from parametric bootstrap simulations of the observed and expected responses using a negative binomial distribution. Provided only as a preliminary assessment of spatial autocorrelation
