Supplementary notes

Respondents were asked, "Do you have any trouble seeing, even when wearing glasses or contact lenses?" Respondents were also asked, "Are you blind or unable to see at all?" In this analysis, any trouble seeing and blind are combined into one category. In 2009, 0.4% of adults 18 years of age and over identified themselves as blind.
Estimates are for persons 25 years of age and over and are age-adjusted to the year 2000 standard population using five age groups: 25-44 years, 45-54 years, 55-64 years, 65-74 years, and 75 years and over.
* GED is General Educational Development high school equivalency diploma.
