Comments

Statistical adjustments are made to minimize bias due to (1) lower coverage among children living in households without telephones, (2) discrepancies between vaccinations reported by household compared with immunization providers, and (3) differences in race/ethnic population distribution in the sample compared to race/ethnic population distribution at birth.

This baseline measure tracks the number of children age 19–35 months, receiving 4 or more doses of the combination of diphtheria, tetanus, and acellular pertussis antigens (DTaP) as well as those children who received the combination of diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis antigens (DTP).
