Preschool-Aged Children Enrolled in Preschool


Source: Census - American Community Survey - B14003 School Enrollment Ages 3+

Denominator: Total Children under the Age of 5

This metric shows preschool-aged children enrolled in preschool. The percentage is calculated by dividing the number of children enrolled in public or private preschools by the estimated number of preschool-aged children. This estimate is described below. We used Census table BI4003 to disaggregate by gender and B104007 to disaggregate by race.

Note: This measure does have some limitations. Depending on when during the year a child is born, he or she enrolls in kindergarten at age 5 or 6, meaning some 5-year-old children are still in a preschool program. Therefore, the numerator and denominator of this measure may not always line up perfectly. Fortunately, there is relatively little variation in the ACS population estimates by age, so a denominator that includes half the 3-year-old children, all the 4-year-old children, and half the 5-year-old children is comparable to the denominator of 3- and 4-year-olds we used here.
