1 n/a - Due to a difference in the age group populations for the Healthy People 2020 Objective for pap (ages 21-65) and the screening data (ages 18+), the Healthy People 2020 Objective is not shown.
2 2018 BRFSS Survey Data is the source for this data collected by the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Data for the US is a median and not a percent.
