(N) is the number of respondents that gave a particular response.
(Estimate) is the percentage of respondents that gave a particular response for a categorical variable, or the average of valid responses for a numeric variable. The estimates are weighted estimates which adjust for workers’ different probabilities of being sampled and responding to the survey.
(Std Err) is the standard error of the estimate.
(a) indicates that the estimate has a relative standard error (RSE) greater than 30 percent but no more than 50 percent. The estimate is published but should be used with caution.
(b) indicates that the estimate is based on fewer than four responses or has a RSE greater than 50 percent. The estimate is considered statistically unreliable and is suppressed.
(c) indicates that the standard error is suppressed because the estimate itself is suppressed.
A dash (-) indicates that the question was not asked in the corresponding time interval.
