Explanation: 2001 The 3rd National Even Start Evaluation did not collect nationally representative data; instead provided data from only 18 subgrantees. Therefore, 2001 data is not available. 2002 data will be analyzed by December 2003, if data from the Consolidated Performance Report (CPR) can be re-formatted to allow for reporting on this indicator. The current version of the CPR does not collect data in a format that will allow for reporting on this indicator. 2003 data is dependent upon the format of the revised CPR.
