NOTES: Final estimates from the National Immunization Survey include an adjustment for children with missing immunization provider data. Poverty level is based on family income and family size using U.S. Census Bureau poverty thresholds. Children missing information about poverty level were omitted from analysis by poverty level. In 2005, 8.1% of all children, 15.8% of Hispanic, 3.9% of non-Hispanic white, and 8.9% of non-Hispanic black children were missing information about poverty level and were omitted. See Appendix II, Poverty. See Appendix I, National Immunization Survey.

Data for additional years are available. See Appendix III.
