Young children not in school
Definitions:The share of children ages 3 to 4 not enrolled in school, including nursery school, preschool school or kindergarten, during the previous three 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.
Due to small sample size, these data are based on a pooled three-year average of 1-year American Community Survey responses to increase the accuracy of the estimates.
Data Source:Population Reference Bureau, analysis of data from the U.S. Census Bureau, pooled 2007-09 to 2017-19 one-year American Community Survey.
These data were derived from ACS table B14003.
Footnotes:Updated October 2020.
S - Estimates suppressed when the confidence interval around the percentage is greater than or equal to 10 percentage points.
N.A. Data not available.
A 90 percent confidence interval for each estimate can be found at Young children not in school.
