Definition: This indicator provides the share of households that contain families with own children in the neighborhood where the average child lives. For instance, if the value is 10%, this statistic is interpreted as "The average child in this metro area lives in a neighborhood where 10% of households contain families with own children."

Notes: "Own children" defined as never-married children under 18 years who are sons or daughters by birth, stepchildren, or adopted children of the householder.
