Note: All estimates are adjusted by age (single years) to U.S. 2000 standard population. SE=Standard error. FPL=Federal Poverty Level. <100% FPL=Poor; 100%–199% FPL= Near poor; <200% FPL=Poor and near poor combined; and ≥200% FPL= Not poor. NR=Not reported because the standard error is greater than 30% the value of the point estimate. 0.0=Zero due to rounding.

*P <0.05 based on t-test for differences between two periods or two groups within each characteristic.

Includes children with at least one permanent tooth present.
Change from 1999–2004. Positive value=increase and negative value=decrease.
Reference group for comparisons within each characteristic, 2011–2016.
