Explanation: For the 1999 cohort of students receiving child care services, performance data were collected through 18-month reports (covering the period Sept. 1999 through Feb. 2001) and 36-month reports (covering the period Sept. 1999 through Aug. 2002). Data are presented (as median percentages) under 2001 -- the end of the 18-month performance period. For the 2001 cohort of students receiving child care services, performance data were collected through 18-month reports (covering the period Oct. 2001 through Mar. 2003) and are presented under 2003, the end of the performance period. The 36-month performance report contained data through Sept. 2004. Data for the 2002 cohort of students have been collected for the 18-month performance report for the period Sept. 2002 through Mar. 2004, and for the 36-month performance report for the period ending Aug. 2005. However, these data will not be reported. Instead, the program has calculated the persistence rate for all program participants for 2004; data are presented for this measure beginning in 2006.
