Percentage of 3- to 5-year-olds, enrolled in center-based preprimary programs, by race/ethnicity and poverty status: 2005

‡ Reporting standards not met. Sample size too small.
NOTE: Estimates are based on children who have yet to enter kindergarten. Center-based programs include day care centers, Head Start program, preschool, prekindergarten, and other early childhood programs. "Poor" is defined to include those families below the poverty threshold; "nonpoor" is defined as 100 percent or more than the poverty threshold. As the 2005 poverty thresholds were not yet available at the time this table was prepared, an approximation was used for analyses using NHES:2005 data. Race categories exclude persons of Hispanic origin.
