Notes.  Descriptive statistics were produced in statistical computing request #US0440.

† Baseline sample is made up of those kids with either an age 4 or age 6 interview.

†† Due to missing data, sample decreases when looking at child’s race, caregiver education, marital status, income, and receipt of AFDC, therefore percentages may not be equal to 100
