Note: To calculate the percent of people in a state served by IDEA and Chapter 1 of the Education Consolidation and Imporvment Act who are within a certain age group, divide the number of people within the age group who were served in the state by the number of people age 0-21 who were served in the state and multiply the result by 100. Example: Calculate the percent of people age 0-5 years served in Utah. This calculation would be: 5,914/55,389=.1068 and .1068x100=10.68%
