NOTE: Table reflects data collected in Phase 3.3, weeks 41–42 (December 29, 2021, through February 7, 2022). Survey item: "During the last 12 months did any of the children in the household have a PREVENTIVE check-up? Select only one answer: (1) Yes, all children had a preventive check-up, (2) Some, but not all, children had a preventive check-up, (3) None of the children had a preventive check-up." Table shows the percent of households with children who reported that all children had a preventive check-up. The revised 1997 U.S. Office of Management and Budget standards on race and ethnicity were used to classify persons into one of the following five racial groups: White, Black or African American, American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian, or Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander. Those reporting more than one race were classified as "Two or more races." Data on race and Hispanic origin are collected separately. Persons of Hispanic origin may be of any race. Included as "Other, non-Hispanic" but not shown separately are American Indian or Alaska Native and "Two or more races," due to the small sample size.
