The data for FY2015 on “number of sites” include only center-based service. The locations of home-based service are not inlcuded as sites. The data on “funded enrollment” include both center-based and home-based funded enrollment. This is the case for all geographic regions.

Note that this is different from how home-based service was reported in previous years. In 2012-2014, although the source data did not identify all home-based service as such, all of the home-based funded enrollment was included in the total funded enrollment reported for all regions (because the source data that IECAM received associated home-based service with site locations). Therefore, it would be accurate to compare total funded enrollment (center-based and home-based) for all geographic regions between FY2015 and FY2012, FY2013, and FY2014.

In 2009 through 2011, the home-based service was reported only for state, county, ISBE region, and IDHS region (because the source data that IECAM received did not associate home-based service with site locations). Therefore, it would be accurate to compare total funded enrollment (center-based and home-based) for FY2015 and for FY2009, FY2010, and FY2011, only for the geographic regions of state, county, ISBE region, and IDHS region, but not for any other geographic regions.
