The following consists of excerpts from:

Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR)
National, State, and Local Area Vaccination Coverage Among Children Aged 19--35 Months --- United States, 2009
To estimate coverage for all age-eligible children, NIS uses a quarterly, random-digit--dialed sample of telephone numbers for the 50 states and selected urban areas and territories,* followed by a mail survey of the children's vaccination providers to collect vaccination information. Data were weighted to represent the population of children aged 19--35 months, with adjustments for households with multiple telephone lines, household nonresponse, and exclusion of households without landline telephones.† During 2009, the household response rate§ was 63.9%; a total of 17,313 children with provider-reported vaccination records were included in this report, representing 70.7% of all children with completed household interviews.

Editorial Comment:
17,313 children nationwide means that Montana, with about 1 million population in a country of 300 million, had about 17,313 ÷ 300 or somewhere in the vicinity of 58 Montana children were included in the survey by their vaccine providers from a total of about 82 Montana children included in household telephone surveys.

Editorial comment:
It should also be noted that nationwide, the percentage of grade 1-12 children who receive all the "recommended" vaccinations is about 99 percent. Montana does not differ markedly from the national average of 99 percent vaccinated school aged children.
