Note: Caution should be used when using these estimates. In March 1995, new health insurance questions were asked in the Current Population Survey. Therefore, 1993 estimates may not be comparable to 1994-1995 estimates.

Note: Percentages listed are averages over the three years' percentages, not the percentage of the average numbers (calculated as 'Number' divided by 'Total Children'). Results may differ slightly based on the method used.
