! Interpret data with caution.
1 Care provided in places such as early learning centers, nursery schools, and preschools, excluding Head Start.
2 Children who spent an equal amount of time in each of two or more arrangements.
NOTE: Primary type of care arrangement is the type of nonparental care in which the child spent the most hours. Data are based on a representative sample of children born in 2001. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding. Reporting standards for Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islanders were not met in some categories; therefore, estimates are not shown. Race categories exclude persons of Hispanic ethnicity.
