Age-adjusted prevalence rates of current smoking, obesity, and fair or poor general health by adverse childhood experience categories, Texas, 2002. The bars represent 95% confidence intervals. Data are from the 2002 Texas Behavioral Risk Surveillance System, age-standardized to the 2000 US census. Current smoking was defined as smoking at least 100 cigarettes and now smoking some days or every day. Obesity was defined as having a body mass index of ≥30 kg/m2. Fair or poor self-reported general health was defined as reporting "fair" or "poor" compared with "excellent," "very good," or "good." Childhood abuse was determined through responses to questions regarding psychological, physical, and sexual abuse. Household dysfunction was determined through responses to questions regarding substance abuse, mental illness, whether mother or stepmother was treated violently, and incarceration of a household member.
