QuickStats: Percentage of U.S. Women Aged 21–65 Years Who Never Had a Papanicolaou Test (Pap Test), by Place of Birth and Length of Residence in the United States

In 2013 and 2015 combined, 6.8% of U.S. women aged 21–65 years had never received a Pap test in their lifetime.

Foreign-born women were more than twice as likely as U.S. born women to have never received a Pap test (13.4% versus 5.2%).

Foreign-born women who lived in the United States for more than 25% of their lifetime were almost twice as likely as those who resided in the United States for 25% or less of their lifetime (21.5% versus 10.9%) to have never received a Pap test.
