Calculating Quintiles
X An arrow indicates a significant change within a geography from the previous to the most recent year (p < 0.05). Please note: Average Strong Start scores provide a snapshot of the constellation of resources available to and demographic characteristics of babies born within a given geography and year. As such, significant changes in average Strong Start scores represent significant differences in the resources available to and the characteristics of the children born from one year to the next. These year-over-year differences are best understood as demographic shifts, and do not necessarily reflect changes in the resources available to individual children or changes that are a result of efforts implemented within communities.

Changes should be considered within the context of the size of the birth population in a given geography.
