The files in the data directory contain estimates of population and poverty. These 2003 SAIPE data were revised on October 2, 2006. 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 2003 estimates reflect poverty in 2003 of the population in 2004 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.
The text files contain only 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.
