Bar chart showing Head Start funded enrollment for Illinois, and Illinois without Chicago, for the years 2009-2018

Data note: Total funded enrollment numbers shown here differ somewhat from Head Start’s Program Information Report (PIR) due to differences in how grantees reported their site-based data to the HS Collaboration Office and how they reported their grantee-wide data to the federal HS program.

IECAM’s Head Start data description page includes detailed information about Head Start data and sources. In addition, the page provides descriptions of Head Start programs, the number of sites, as well as a link to a list of Head Start and Early Head Start Grantees by year.
