New data suppression guidelines implemented by the Colorado Department of Education have limited the ability to calculate new data for this indicator in recent years. The indicator will be updated on the KIDS COUNT Data Center if or when new data are released that allow for the necessary calculations to be completed. Until then, these data may provide useful historical information for those working in this field.
