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: HFA, NFP, PAT, and SafeCare Augmented. • Missing and unknown data were not included in calculations. • Percentages may not add to 100 due to rounding. • To protect confidentiality, race and ethnicity categories with 10 or fewer participants were replaced with *. • 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. • HFA data for private insurance includes other forms of health insurance. • PAT data for child insurance status and primary language were not included. • SafeCare Augmented reported primary language, ethnicity, race, and families served only.
