School District Estimates for 2005

The files in the data directory contain estimates of population and poverty. The school districts for which we have estimates were identified in the 2005 school district mapping project, which asked about all school districts as of January 1, 2006. The 2005 estimates reflect poverty in 2005 of the population in 2005 for school district boundaries in the 2005-2006 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.

Excel format:

  • USSD05.xls - Estimates for every school district in the nation
Text format:
  • USSD05.txt - Estimates for every school district in the nation
  • sd05_[STATE].txt - Estimates for every school district in an individual state, where [STATE] = standard two-letter postal abbreviations.

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.
