States provided data from their 2021 MIECHV federal report. Data represent families served through MIECHV-funded programs in fiscal year 2021. MIECHV State Data Tables include MIECHV data only. Numbers may vary from those in NHVRC State Profiles, which may include both MIECHV and non-MIECHV data provided by evidence-based models. • Caregivers include pregnant women, female caregivers, and male caregivers. • Caregivers and children with missing data were excluded from the calculations. • Public insurance includes Medicaid, CHIP, and TRICARE. • Low income is defined as family income at or below 100 percent of the federal poverty guidelines. • Counts of FTE home visitor and supervisor positions were rounded to the nearest whole number. • To protect confidentiality, race and ethnicity categories with 10 or fewer caregivers were replaced with *. • Percentages may not add to 100 due to rounding. • Home visiting service and demographic data in this profile were provided by IA. As of July 1st, 2021, demographic data also include children and families served through Healthy Opportunities for Parents to Experience Success (HOPES) HFI, a component of Healthy Families Iowa.
