  • *CAM: complementary and alternative medical treatment (eg, self-help group, chiropractor, faith healer, etc).

  • †The numbers of respondents with ADHD reported here, when divided by the total numbers of employed respondents in the age range 18–44, which were reported in table 1, do not reproduce the prevalence estimates reported in table 1. This is because the sample sizes reported here are unweighted (ie, they represent the actual numbers of respondents in the various samples), while the prevalence estimates are based on weighted data.

  • ADHD, attention-defecit/hyperactivity disorder; SE, standard error.
