NHVRC State Profiles present data provided by evidence-based models, which include both MIECHV and non-MIECHV data. • Percentages may not add up 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. • EHS programs in VT offer a combination of service options. EHS data are not included because home-based service data cannot be isolated from statewide data. • MECSH reports families served and home visits only. The number of families served was included as a proxy for children served. • NFP data in VT come from state MIECHV data. • PAT data for child insurance status and primary language are not included.
