For instance, if the value is 10% for Hispanic children, this statistic is interpreted as "The average Hispanic child in this metro area lives in a neighborhood where 10% of the population, aged 16-19, neither are enrolled in school nor have a high school diploma ."

Notes: Children defined as under 18. Excludes metro areas with less than 5,000 child population of the specified racial/ethnic group.
