Definitions: The share of children ages 3 to 5 not enrolled in nursery school or kindergarten during the previous two months. 
"Nursery school" and "preschool" include any group or class of institution providing educational experiences for children during the years preceding kindergarten. Places where instruction is an integral part of the program are included, but private homes that primarily provide custodial care are not included. Children enrolled in programs sponsored by federal, state or local agencies to provide preschool education to young children--including Head Start programs--are considered as enrolled in nursery school or preschool.  Children enrolled in first grade are excluded from this analysis.
