School District Estimates for 2002

The 2002 school district estimate files only contain data - no labels, no table headers, no titles. A description of the contents of the files can be found below or in the file "README" in the file directory.

Access school district data files for 2002

I.    File Organization:

    The files in the data directory contain estimates of population and
    poverty.  The school districts for which we have estimates were 
    identified in the 2003 school district mapping project,
    which asked about all school districts as of January 1, 2004. The 2002 
    estimates reflect poverty in 2002 of the population in 2003 for school 
    district boundaries in the 2003-2004 school year.  There is one 
    file for each of the states, the District of Columbia, and the entire 
    United States.  Each file contains the FIPS state code, Department of 
    Education Common Core of Data (CCD) ID numbers, District names, 
    the total population, population of school-age children, and estimated 
    number of school-age children in poverty related to the head of the household.

II.   File Names

     Two kinds of files are located here:

        1) USSD02.dat           (A large file containing the estimates for
                                 every school district in the Nation)
