Prepared by Early Childhood Analytics
This report uses data from the 5-Year American Community Survey (ACS) to find demographic estimates for Region 11 AI/AN Head Start Programs. Tables DP03, S0101 and B17001A-I are used for the geography All American Indian Areas/Alaska Native Areas/Hawaiian Home Lands within United States. It combines these estimates with data from Program Information Reports from the Head Start Enterprise System. If there is no data or limited data in the tables and graphs below then there was not a large enough sample size for the service area for the ACS to produce reliable estimates. This report is an excerpt of a longer version which includes, among other things:
- Median family income and income distribution for the service area
- Households receiving SSI, SNAP Benefits/Food Stamps, and cash public assistance
- Interactive map with data overlays by Zip Code & by recruitment area
- Children with disabilities
