Note that 1996 data is not available at the county level due to early collection of the data which skipped every other year.  Also of note, there is a break in the SAIPE time-series between 2004 and 2005 due to the switch from CPS ASEC to ACS data in SAIPE modeling. Comparisons across these particular years are not advised because of this break in series.  Please see the Small Area and Income Poverty Estimates website for more information: http://www.census.gov/did/www/saipe/methods/cautions.html

Footnotes: Please note that this indicator was previously (before 2010) called "# of Head Start/Early Head Start Participants."  While the number of slots per county represents how many children are being served, the actual number served throughout the year may be higher.  This is due to the fact that a child may move or drop out of the program and the slot opens back up and then is filled by another child on the waiting list.  

Totals include Migrant Head Start Program, which are available upon request.

Head Start data for SFY 2009-2010 contains slot information for Head Start and the Migrant Head Start Program together.

Definitions: The percentage of women who reported they had smoked during pregnancy. Due to a change in data collection in 2007, cross-time comparison between the two "series" of data is discouraged.

Data Source: The Indiana State Department of Health, Epidemiology Resource Center, Data Analysis Team.

Original natality reports available at http://www.in.gov/isdh/19095.htm

Footnotes: Cross-time comparison of this indicator between the two time series is discouraged. Indiana used the "1989 Standard Birth Certificate" from 1990 to 2006. Indiana started using the “2003” Revised Birth Certificate on January. 1, 2007.

Before 2007, the question asked "Did mother smoke during pregnancy?"  Depending on the response, the facility would check one of the following boxes: Yes, No, or Unknown.

Beginning in 2007, more detailed information was collected such as: the average number of cigarettes/or packs that were smoked during the three months prior to becoming pregnant, the first three months of pregnancy, the second three months of pregnancy, and the last trimester of pregnancy.  If the mother smoked at any time during her pregnancy, she was considered to be a smoker for this indicator.

For more info, please see the Preface of any Natality report released by the Indiana State Department of Health:  http://www.in.gov/isdh/19095.htm

Original natality reports available at http://www.in.gov/isdh/19095.htm

Footnotes: Cross-time comparison of this indicator between the two series is discouraged.  Indiana used the "1989 Standard Birth Certificate" from 1990 to 2006.Indiana started using the "2003" Revised Birth Certificate on January 1, 2007.

Before 2007, the question asked "Did mother smoke during pregnancy?"  Depending on the response, the facility would check one of the following boxes: Yes, No, or Unknown.

Beginning in 2007, more detailed information was collected such as: the average number of cigarettes/or packs that were smoked during the three months prior to becoming pregnant, the first three months of pregnancy, the second three months of pregnancy, and the last trimester of pregnancy.  If the mother smoked at any time during her pregnancy, she was considered to be a smoker for this indicator.

Before 2007, the prenatal care question asked for the month of pregnancy in which prenatal care began.

Beginning in 2007, the question now asks for the date of last normal menses and the date of the first prenatal visit.  The month prenatal care began is then calculated from these two variables.

If the day of the month was unknown, the day of the month was calculated using a program that the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) has developed. NCHS has observed a decrease in the percent of mothers receiving care in the first month for all states who have adopted the revised certificate and considers it to be the result of better reporting.

Definitions:

There are two main categories of child maltreatment: abuse and neglect.  Further distinctions within the category of abuse are sexual abuse and physical abuse.  When referencing Indiana's data, it is important to note that a child is counted in only one category per investigation using the federal hierarchy of sexual abuse first, then physical abuse, and then neglect.


NEGLECT: The number of cases that following investigation by Child Protection Services were determined to be substantiated child neglect.  Percentage of cases substantiated are those neglect cases, out of total investigated, that are considered substantiated child neglect.

SEXUAL ABUSE:  The number of cases that following investigation by Child Protection Services were determined to be substantiated sexual child abuse.  The percent substantiated is the total number of substantiated cases divided by the total number of investigations. 

PHYSICAL ABUSE: The number of cases that following investigation by Child Protective Services  were determined to be substantiated physical child abuse.  The percentage of abuse are the number of substantiated physical abuse cases divided by the total number of physical abuse cases investigated.
