Unequal neighborhood availability of Head Start: State equity data explorer


Use the State Equity Data Explorer tools below to view detailed data about Head Start neighborhood availability by race/ethnicity and nativity in your states of interest. Neighborhood availability of Head Start is an important indicator of low-income children’s access to quality early education and care in the U.S. Past research has shown that when children have a center in their immediate neighborhood, they are more likely to attend Head Start, particularly for immigrant and Hispanic children.
