Definitions: Annual estimates of the North Carolina population under age 18 by age group on July 1st.

Data presented for 2010 through 2019 are from Vintage 2019 Bridged-Race Postcensal Population Estimates, which are produced under a collaborative arrangement between the Center for Disease Control's National Center for Health Statistics and the U. S. Census Bureau. With each annual release of the Bridged-Race Estimates, the estimates for each year beginning with 2010 are revised, which means that previously published estimates for the same years will be slightly different from the most current estimates presented here.  Values for 1990, 2000, and 2010 represent revised population estimates for July 1, 1990, July 1, 2000, and July 1, 2010 - not actual Census counts from April 1, 1990, April 1, 2000, and April 1, 2010.

Data Source: Center for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center for Health Statistics. Vintage 2019 postcensal estimates of the resident population of the United States (April 1, 2010, July 1, 2010-July 1, 2019), by year, county, single-year of age (0, 1, 2, .., 85 years and over), bridged race, Hispanic origin, and sex. Prepared under a collaborative arrangement with the U.S. Census Bureau.

Definitions: Estimated number of children younger than age four by race and ethnicity.
Data presented for 2010 through 2019 are from Vintage 2019 Bridged-Race Postcensal Population Estimates, which are produced under a collaborative arrangement between the Center for Disease Control's National Center for Health Statistics and the U. S. Census Bureau. With each annual release of the Bridged-Race Estimates, the estimates for each year beginning with 2010 are revised, which means that previously published estimates for the same years will be slightly different from the most current estimates presented here.  Values for 1990, 2000, and 2010 represent revised population estimates for July 1, 1990, July 1, 2000, and July 1, 2010 - not actual Census counts from April 1, 1990, April 1, 2000, and April 1, 2010.

Definitions: Estimated number of children younger than age 15 by race and ethnicity.
Data presented for 2010 through 2019 are from Vintage 2019 Bridged-Race Postcensal Population Estimates, which are produced under a collaborative arrangement between the Center for Disease Control's National Center for Health Statistics and the U. S. Census Bureau. With each annual release of the Bridged-Race Estimates, the estimates for each year beginning with 2010 are revised, which means that previously published estimates for the same years will be slightly different from the most current estimates presented here.  Values for 1990, 2000, and 2010 represent revised population estimates for July 1, 1990, July 1, 2000, and July 1, 2010 - not actual Census counts from April 1, 1990, April 1, 2000, and April 1, 2010.

Definitions:

The income at which one-half of North Carolina households earn more or less.
Price inflation causes the value of a dollar to fall over time, and so the same dollar amount in two different years will usually represent different amounts of purchasing power. To counteract this problem, analysts typically adjust dollar figures to account for inflation using the following formula:

Dollars data year = Dollars base year x Price Index data year / Price Index base year

Consumer Price Index Consumer Price Index data are available U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Definitions: Median annual income for families with own children under age 18 living in the household.  "Own children" include the householder's (head of the household) children by birth, marriage, or adoption.  The median income is the dollar amount that divides the income distribution into two equal groups--half with income above the median, half with income below it.

Data Source: U.S. Census Bureau, American Community Survey 5-year estimates, 2006-2010 through 2014-2018, Table B19125.

Footnotes: Although overlapping 5-year time periods are shown for this indicator, the Census Bureau suggests comparing periods that do not overlap—for example, comparing 2009–2013 estimates with 2014–2018 estimates. This means waiting longer to identify a trend. However, in areas undergoing fundamental shifts in the size or composition of the population, change may be so substantial that it will be obvious after only a few years.

Definitions: The estimated number and percentage of children under age 18 by race/ethnicity living in a census tract with an estimated poverty level of 30% or greater, as determined using American Community Survey 5-Year Estimates.
Using Table B17001 of the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey Estimates, an estimated percent below 100% poverty is determined for each census tract. For the census tracts with an estimated poverty level of 30% or greater, the B01001-series of tables are used to estimate the population under age 18 by race and ethnicity for each tract with a poverty level of at least 30 percent. The census tract data is then aggregated to the county and state level for each race/ethnicity cohort.

Data Source: U.S. Census Bureau, 2006-2010 through 2014-2018 American Community Survey 5-Year Estimates, Tables B01001, B01001B-B01001H, and B17001.

Footnotes: Although overlapping 5-year time periods are shown for this indicator, the Census Bureau suggests comparing periods that do not overlap—for example, comparing 2009–2013 estimates with 2014–2018 estimates. This means waiting longer to identify a trend. However, in areas undergoing fundamental shifts in the size or composition of the population, change may be so substantial that it will be obvious after only a few years. For more information on making comparisons with ACS multi-year estimates, see Appendix 1 of ACS General Handbook.

Non-Hispanic Black and African American is not available from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey Summary tables. Therefore, race/ethnic groups represented in this table are not mutually exclusive. The category of white includes only non-Hispanic white. The categories "Black or African American" and "Some Other Race" include both Hispanic and non-Hispanic.

S=Indicates suppressed data (less than 10 cases).

A zero value indicates that the county had no census tracts with an estimated poverty rate of at least 30%, or that estimates reflect that no one under age 18 resided in the census tract for the given race/ethnicity cohort during the time period.

Smaller numbers reflect less reliable estimates and should be used with caution.

Definitions: Children under age 18 who live with their own single parent either in a family or subfamily.  Single-parent families may include cohabiting couples and do not include children living with married stepparents.

Definitions: Number and percent without health insurance for children under 19-years-old, for adults ages 18-64-years-old, and for the total population under 65-years-old.

Data Source: US Census Bureau, Small Area Health Insurance Estimates (SAHIE) - 2008 through 2018.

Beginning in 2008, the SAHIE began using model-based enhancements of the American Community Survey (ACS) estimates, created by integrating additional information from administrative records, postcensal population estimates, and decennial census data to produce estimates that are more reliable. The SAHIE estimates are available annually at the state and county level.

Rather than reporting data for the population under age 18, the under age 19 group is included in the survey since it is congruent with the age cohort used to determine CHIP eligibility. The age 18-64 cohort is intended to approximate the working age population.

Prior to 2013, elevated blood lead levels refers to children receiving two consecutive blood lead test results of greater than 10 micrograms per deciliter within a six month period. 

Starting July 5, 2012, the CDC lowered its reference value to 5 micrograms per deciliter; therefore, surveillance tables for 2013 and later include testing and confirmation at ≥5 micrograms per deciliter.

Definitions:

The number and rate per 1,000 children investigated (receiving assessments) for abuse and neglect during the state fiscal year (July – June).

The number of children with a substantiated finding by category during the state fiscal year (July – June) by most severe finding.

Substantiated abuse is defined as a situation in which a child’s parent, guardian, custodian or caretaker inflicts or allows to be inflicted, creates or allows to be created a substantial risk of serious physical injury by other than accidental means; or uses or allows to be used upon the child cruel or grossly inappropriate procedures or cruel or grossly inappropriate devices to modify behavior; or commits, permits, or encourages the commission of any sexual offense by, with or upon the child in violation of the law; promotes the prostitution of the child; or creates or allows to be created serious emotional damage to the child; or encourages, directs or approves of delinquent acts involving moral turpitude committed by the child. Substantiated neglect is defined as a situation in which a child does not receive proper care, supervision or discipline from the child’s parent, guardian, custodian or caretaker; or who has been abandoned; or who is not provided necessary medical care; or who is not provided necessary remedial care; or who lives in an environment injurious to the child’s welfare; or who has been placed for care or adoption in violation of the law. In determining whether a child is neglected, it is relevant if that the child lives in a home where another child has died as a result of abuse or neglect or lives in a home where another child has been subjected to sexual abuse or severe physical abuse by an adult who regularly lives in the home.

Definitions: A school-based complaint represents an delinquent or status offense that occurs on school grounds, school property (buses, etc.), at a school bus stop, or at an off-campus school-sanctioned event (field trips, athletic competitions, etc.) or whose victim is a school (i.e. false bomb report). "School" includes any public or private institution providing elementary (K-8), secondary (9-12), or post-secondary (community college, trade school, college, etc.) education, but excludes home schools, preschools, and day cares. School-based offenses exclude Interstate Compact Juveniles cases.

A non-school based complaint represents an offense that did not occur on school grounds, school property, at a school bus stop, or at an off-campus school-sanctioned event. A school- a public or private institution providing elementary, secondary, or post-secondary education- cannot be the victim of a non-school based offense.
