NOTES: Data are for the civilian noninstitutionalized population. Persons of Hispanic origin may be of any race. Respondents from the National Interview Survey were asked: "Have you ever had a sigmoidoscopy, colonoscopy, or proctoscopy?" These are exams in which a health care professional inserts a tube into the rectum to look for signs of cancer or other problems. Percent of poverty level is based on family income and family size and composition using U.S. Census Bureau poverty thresholds. See Appendix II, Education; Hispanic origin; Poverty; Race.
