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 2017 postcensal estimates of the resident population of the United States (April 1, 2010, July 1, 2010-July 1, 2017), by year, county, single-year of age (0, 1, 2, .., 85 years and over), bridged race, Hispanic origin, and sex.

Definitions: Estimated number of persons younger than age 21 by race and ethnicity.

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 2017 postcensal estimates of the resident population of the United States (April 1, 2010, July 1, 2010-July 1, 2017), 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: 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: Poverty Thresholds - The income cutoffs used by the Census Bureau to determine the poverty status of families and unrelated individuals include a set of 48 thresholds arranged in a two dimensional matrix consisting of family size (from one person to nine or more persons) cross-classified by presence and number of family members under 18 years old (from no children present to 8 or more children present). The total income of each family or unrelated individual in the sample was tested against the appropriate poverty threshold to determine the poverty status of that family or unrelated individual.

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 2013-2017 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 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 the 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: A family is a group of two people or more (one of whom is designated as the householder) related by birth, marriage, or adoption and residing together; all such people (including related subfamily members) are considered as members of one family.
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. Children who live in group quarters (for example, institutions, dormitories, or group homes) are not included in this calculation.

Data Source: U.S. Census Bureau, Census 2010, Table P40.

Footnotes:  This measure is presented separately using two different sources.  The decennial census, which reflects an population count every ten years, and the American Community Survey (ACS) 5-year Estimates, which are updated annually and reflect an average over a five-year period.  Therefore, it is not recommended that the decennial census data be compared to the ACS 5-year Estimates data for this indicator.

Why This Indicator Matters

Drs. Robert Anda and Vincent Felitti studied the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) on a number of health behaviors and found that higher ACE total scores were related to a greater occurrence of health problems (Felitti et al., 1998).

The good news is that what's predictable is preventable. The first step in preventing ACEs is understanding what they are.

Definitions: ACE data are collected via the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) managed by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC). The BRFSS is a cross-sectional, telephone-based survey of health-related risk behaviors, history of chronic health conditions, and preventative behaviors. Non-institutionalized adults 18 years or older are randomly selected to take part in the survey. The survey is conducted year-round using random digit dialing (RDD) techniques on both landlines and cell phones. Children’s Trust collected the data through the BRFSS with funds provided through the community-based child abuse prevention funds (2014 and 2015) and the BlueCross BlueShield Foundation of South Carolina (2016-2018.)
