*Significant difference between 2002 and 2010, 𝑃 < . 0 5 ; indicated on variables with more than two levels.
Estimate’s Relative Standard Error (a measure of estimate precision) is greater than 30% or the sample size is too small, making the estimate potentially unreliable.
n/c: not calculated because one or more estimates is unreliable.
We present only one category for dichotomous variables to eliminate redundancy in the table.
