Racial/ethnic inequities in neighborhood availability of Head Start: Does neighborhood availability of Head Start vary for children of different race/ethnicities?

This fact sheet provides data on the availability of Head Start centers at the neighborhood level, as well as the share of poor preschool aged children by race/ethnicity. The data reveals that less than one-third of preschool aged children living in poverty have an available neighborhood Head Start center. After adjusting for the number of poor children in a neighborhood, significant racial/ethnic inequities in availability were found.
