* Estimates by poverty status were age adjusted using the 2000 U.S. standard population and four age groups: 40--49, 50--64, 65--74, and >75 years. Estimates were based on household interviews of a sample of the noninstitutionalized, U.S. civilian population.
Poor was defined as annual household income <100% of the poverty threshold, near poor as 100%--199%, and nonpoor as >200%, based on U.S. Bureau of the Census thresholds.

In 2005, approximately 67% of women aged >40 years reported they had received a mammogram during the preceding 2 years. This percentage increased with household income level and ranged from 49% for women categorized as poor to 72% for women categorized as nonpoor.
