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

Data presented for 2010 through 2017 are from Vintage 2017 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 2018 postcensal estimates of the resident population of the United States (April 1, 2010, July 1, 2010-July 1, 2018), 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 2018 are from Vintage 2018 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 2018 postcensal estimates of the resident population of the United States (April 1, 2010, July 1, 2010-July 1, 2018), 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 15 by race and ethnicity.
Data presented for 2010 through 2018 are from Vintage 2018 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 2018 postcensal estimates of the resident population of the United States (April 1, 2010, July 1, 2010-July 1, 2018), by year, county, single-year of age (0, 1, 2, .., 85 years and over), bridged race, Hispanic origin, and sex.

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

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 2013-2017, 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 2006–2010 estimates with 2011–2015 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.

Definitions: Percentage of persons ages 18-24 who reported that they had neither attained a high school diploma nor GED.

The American Community Survey is now used as the main source of educational attainment data because it has a larger sample and provide more reliable statistics on smaller geographical areas.The latest data represents 5-year estimates.

Data Source: U.S. Census Bureau, American Community Survey 5-year estimates, 2006-2010 through 2013-2017, Table S1501.

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 2006–2010 estimates with 2011–2015 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.

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 2017.

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.

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 is an 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.

A non-school based complaint is 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. 

Data Source: North Carolina Department of Public Safety, Division of Juvenile Justice. Special data request, 2012.

Footnotes: S indicates that at least one category has a number smaller than 5 for a given county and year.
