NOTE: The Early Childhood Longitudinal Study, Birth Cohort (ECLS-B) is a sample of children who were born between January and December 2001. ECLS-B collected information on children's race by asking parents if their child was White, Black, Asian, Pacific Islander, and/or American Indian/Alaska Native. Parents were asked to choose one or more categories that applied to their child. American Indian/Alaska Native includes those of Hispanic origin and those in combination with one or more other races.
