Study Participants

In the analytic sample, 96 percent of children were African American and 4 percent were White. About half the parents or caregivers had a high school diploma (49 percent in the intervention group and 50 percent in the comparison group) but no higher education, and just over one-third did not have a high school diploma (37 percent in the intervention group and 38 percent in the comparison group). Fewer than half of the families used public assistance as income (46 percent in the intervention group and 38 percent in the comparison group). At baseline, the children's average age was 55 months.
