Notes

NA="Not Applicable" because there are zero estimated Head Start eligible children of that group or the source data for the specified group is suppressed due to low/no observations. A Head Start eligible child is defined as a three- or four-year old with family income below 100% of the Federal Poverty Line. Head Start centers include Head Start preschool centers only (i.e. excludes other types of Head Start centers such as Early Head Start and Migrant and Seasonal Head Start centers). A child's immediate neighborhood is defined as the census tract within which he/she lives. Nativity refers to parental nativity, not the nativity of the child. Native-born indicates that both of a child’s parents were born in the U.S. (or one parent in single-parent families). Foreign-born indicates that one or both of a child’s parents were born outside of the U.S. Native-born indicates that both parents were born in the U.S. (or one parent in single-parent families). Data used for calculating estimates are drawn from surveys and are therefore subject to sampling variability; indicator values should be compared with caution.
