|Non-Hispanic white||40–64||1.00 (0.93–1.07)|
|Non-Hispanic other||40–64||1.05 (0.95–1.17)|

Figure. Adjusted prevalence ratios (APRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) for receipt of cervical cancer screening, by insurance status and stratified by race/ethnicity and age, for women in selected Oregon and California OCHIN-affiliated community health centers, from 2008 through 2010 (N = 11,560). Adjusted prevalence ratios are significant at the α = .05 level if the 95% confidence interval does not contain 1.00.
