Definition and Source



Child population is the total resident population under age 18 in each geographical area, including dependents of Armed Forces personnel stationed in the area. Hispanic or Latino children are counted as an ethnicity, not a race, and may be of any race.  Numbers count all children and all children by race or ethnicity.  Percents compare children under 5 of each race or ethnicity to the total number of children under 5 in that geographical area. (S) indicates suppressed data less of than 10 cases.

Data Source

U.S. Census American Community Survey 5-Year Estimates


There is no agreement about the specific terminology or the number of categories that should be used to classify race and ethnicity. Various sources use different titles to report racial characteristics. Persons within each race of ethnicity are encouraged to re-title or refer to the data in a manner which reflects their preferences. This population data is estimated based on samples by the U.S. Bureau of the Census for each year. Numbers and rates may differ from an earlier Oklahoma KIDS COUNT data book due to the availability of updated Census population estimates.
