Data are derived from the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) database, U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs. As required under Section 618 of IDEA, states and territories report the setting where Part C services are delivered (home, community-based, or other).
Data are based on child counts as defined in the numerator and denominator sections above. Data are aggregated by states and territories so that there are a total of 57 entries (50 states plus DC, Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, Virgin Islands, N. Marianas, BIA). Specific population template data are unavailable (e.g., data by gender, race-ethnicity).
