Early childhood homelessness state profiles: Data collected in 2017-2018

This report updates ED's annual Early Childhood Homelessness State Profiles and provides a snapshot of early childhood data available for children who are experiencing homelessness in each state, plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. It includes publicly available data for 2017–2018 from the U.S. Census Bureau (Census), ED, HUD, HHS, and the Annie E. Casey Foundation and reports the following by state: - Total population under age six in 2018 - Estimated number of children under age six experiencing homelessness in 2017–2018 - Estimated extent of homelessness (e.g., one-in-[X] children under age six experienced homelessness in 2017–2018) • Estimated enrollment of children under age six in Federally funded early childhood programs (i.e., Head Start and school districts receiving McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act (McKinney-Vento Act) subgrants) in 2017–2018 As in previous profiles, the 2020 report includes two indicators referred to as related factors. These factors are the percentage of families experiencing a "high housing cost burden" (defined as spending 30 percent or more of monthly income on housing expenses), and the percentage of young children under age six with no parent in the labor force in the United States.
