Notes: All sample surveys are subject to sampling error, that is, the extent to which the results differ from what would be obtained if the whole population had received the questionnaire. Since the whole population does not receive the questionnaire in a sample survey, the true size of the sampling error cannot be known. However, it can be estimated from the responses to the survey. The estimate of sampling error depends largely on the number of respondents and the amount of variability in the data. Consult the full text document for an explanation of sampling error estimates for each table which vary by table. State data which deviates from the standard sampling error for an individual table is marked with a \a or \b.
