Data Source:

Includes the percentage of children, ages 0–5, who have books read to them by their parents every day of the week. County estimates are based on California Health Interview Survey. To create multi-year estimates, Children Now conducted analysis of race/ethnicity data using “askCHIS”, and combined two years of data. CHIS clusters responses into three multi-county groups for select low-population counties. The multi-county groups are as follows: (1) Del Norte, Siskiyou, Lassen, Trinity, Modoc, Plumas and Sierra; (2) Tehama, Glenn and Colusa; (3) Tuolumne, Calaveras, Amador, Inyo, Mariposa, Mono and Alpine.




An asterisk indicates that data should be interpreted with caution. Asterisks were used to note low number of events (fewer than 10) or unstable data with large confidence intervals. Data or estimates with low numbers and large confidence intervals indicate that a data point may not be a true representation of the larger population.

NA (Not Available)

Data that are not available are noted as NA. The most frequent reasons for using the NA annotation include the unavailability of longitudinal data, data suppression from the original data source due to a low number event, or statistically unstable estimates.
