Percentages and population estimates (Pop.Est.) are weighted to represent child population in US.
Hispanic includes all children reporting Hispanic/Latino origin; Non-Hispanic children reporting a single race category of either White or Black are grouped respectively; Non-Hispanic children reporting more than one race category are grouped under "Other, non-Hispanic". Non-Hispanic children reporting Asian, Native American, Native Alaskan or Native Hawaiian are categorized as "Other, non-Hispanic" due to small sample sizes in most states.
