States provided data from their 2019 MIECHV federal report. Data represent families served through MIECHV-funded programs in fiscal year 2019. 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.
