Change Indicator


Definitions: The percent of children under 6 years old with all parents in the workforce.

Data Source: The U.S. Census Bureau's American Fact Finder, 2005-2009, 2006-2010, 2007-2011, 2008-2012, and 2009-2013 American Community Survey (ACS) 5-Year Estimates. Data were retrieved on July 28, 2015 from: (Table GCT2302).

*Please use these estimates with caution. The total confidence interval (upper bound minus lower bound) of the percent estimate, is 10 percentage points or greater, which indicates that this estimate has a large margin of error. This generally occurs when estimate relies on small number of cases. To obtain total confidence interval values around the estimates for this indicator please contact Washington KIDS COUNT.

The 2009-2013 ACS data release marked the fifth time that 5-year estimates were released for all counties in Washington state. The ACS 2009-2013 data were collected during calendar years 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013. 

The 5-year ACS estimates represent the average characteristics over the 5-year period of time, and therefore are less current than 1-year ACS estimates. However, these estimates are more reliable than 1-year and 3-year ACS estimates because they are based on a larger sample size. The 5-year estimates are also available for all geographic areas because of their sample size, whereas the 3-year  estimates are published for populations of 20,000 or greater, and the 1-year estimates are only published for populations of 65,000 or greater.
