Sample sizes shown are un- weighted Ns. NORC percentages are calculated from weighted tabulations. Combined fit esti- mates and standard errors were derived using procedures of Fay (1982) to take account of complex sample design and sample weighting. (Weights in each survey were normalized so that the weighted N for each survey equaled the unweighted case count.)
