Percentage of infants/toddlers living outside of metro areas

The denominator is the total number of children ages 0-2. The numerator is those who live outside of metro areas. Metropolitan areas include central/principal cities, metro areas outside of central/principal cities, and metro areas with central/principal city status indeterminable. Non-metropolitan areas are areas outside of metropolitan areas. Cases whose metropolitan status is indeterminable or mixed are excluded from the urbanicity subgroup analysis.
