Supplementary notes

Estimates are based on household interviews of a sample of the U.S. civilian noninstitutionalized population. Culture was defined as “race or ethnicity or gender or religion or beliefs or native language.” Adults categorized as Hispanic may be of any race or combination of races. Adults categorized as non-Hispanic white and non-Hispanic black indicated one race only. Estimates for non-Hispanic persons of races other than white only or black only, or of multiple races, are combined into the non-Hispanic other category.

* Among those who thought it was at least slightly important to have a health care provider who shared or understood their culture.
