Data Source: (1990) Department of Health and Human Services, Region III. Administration for Children and Families, Office for Community Programs, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  (2007 to present) WV Head Start Association.

Footnotes: In some counties, the percentage of children 3-4 years old funded by Head Start exceeds the percentage of children in poverty; this may be due to (1) the poverty percentage is estimated by the Census Bureau and, therefore, may not be exact; (2) the population of 3 and 4-year-olds is estimated by the Census Bureau and, therefore, may not be exact, and/or (3) guidelines for the program allow up to 10% of children enrolled in Head Start to exceed the poverty level.
