a. The percentage of children receiving the full federal benefit rate, as shown in Table 17, is smaller than the percentage of those with no income, as shown here, because of the effect of parental deemed income in the payment computation.
b. Does not include income deemed from parents in the household.
c. The sum of the entries may be greater than the total because some recipients may receive more than one type of unearned income.

NOTE: The total of children with one or two parents in the household differs slightly from the number of children living in a parent's household in Table 18. This is because the data in Table 18 represent only households in which a parent is the head of the household, whereas the data in this table include children living with parents who are not the head of the household.
a. Children with no parents in the household reside independently, with other relatives or nonrelatives, or in institutions or in foster care. Deeming does not apply in these situations.
