DATA ALERT: Hispanic includes all children reporting Hispanic/Latino origin; Non-Hispanic children reporting a single race category of either White or Black are grouped respectively; Non-Hispanic children reporting more than one race category are grouped as "Multi-racial"; Non-Hispanic children reporting only one race category of Asian, American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, or Pacific Islander are grouped as "Other" because of small sample sizes. There is approximately 2% missing data for race.
