(end citation). Notes from Data Source: Data accessed on November 21, 2022. Child Care Aware® of Missouri works in partnership with the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education - Office of Childhood to compile data on child care programs. Since child care programs change frequently, the Office of Childhood should always be contacted for the exact number of licensed programs and licensed capacity data (https://dese.mo.gov/childhood/child-care/find-care). Child Care Aware® of Missouri tracks data on licensed child care, early learning, and after-school programs across the state, as well as early learning and after-school programs that opt-in to regulations or list referrals to families. Child Care Aware® of Missouri recognizes that there are groups of preschool, child care, and after-school programs that may not be captured in these totals because they are not required to provide information about themselves to any authority. Child care facilities operated by religious organizations, and facilities that serve each child for no more than four hours a day are required by statute to be inspected but are exempt from licensure. Family child care homes that serve six or fewer children and child care provided by public or private K-12 education are some examples that are not subject to regulation.

Gini Index of Income Inequality

The Gini Index is a measure of income inequality ranging from 0 to 1. A value of 0 represents perfect income equality (everyone has the same income); a value of 1 represents complete inequality (one person has all the income and others have none). Warehouse data is updated twice a year and is as up to date as the data source when published.

Homelessness

The Missouri Balance of State (BoS) CoC conducts a Point-in-Time Count throughout its 101 county geographic area each year as required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The count helps Missourians monitor trends in the homeless population and increases public awareness of homelessness. The unsheltered Point in Time Count was not conducted nationally in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
