NHVRC State Profiles present data provided by evidence-based models, which include both MIECHV and non-MIECHV data. This State Profile includes participant data from the following evidence-based models: Child First, EHS, HFA, HIPPY, NFP, PAT, and PALS. • Missing and unknown data were not included in calculations. • Percentages may not add to 100 due to rounding. • Public insurance includes Medicaid, CHIP, and TRICARE. • Low income is defined as family income below the federal poverty threshold. • Single mothers include single, never married mothers or pregnant women. • EHS data may be underreported. Data include EHS programs that provided home-based services only. EHS race and ethnicity data include children and pregnant caregivers. EHS did not report home visits. Data for child insurance status were not included. • HFA reported primary language of caregivers. Private insurance includes other forms of health insurance. • NFP reported primary language of caregivers. • PAT data for child insurance status and primary language were not included. • PALS reported data reflecting the PALS I and PALS II programs.
