Because the primary sampling units used for this survey are drawn from strata that may or may not cross state lines, state estimates derived from this collection may not be as reliable as national data.

A probability sample of approximately 71,000 households was used to represent the universe. Every state (and the District of Columbia) is covered. There are 629 sampling areas, which include 1,148 counties and cities.

All persons in the civilian noninstitutional population of the United States.
