Notes:
  1. Children reported to receive a $0 or $1 subsidy are considered to have a deferred subsidy. This number is likely underreported due to differences in how states report deferred agreements.
  2. Except where noted, data presented in these tables are reported to ACF by states. Although ACF continues to work with states to improve the quality of AFCARS data, neither ACF nor RTI can verify the validity or completeness of these data.
