The files in the data directory contain estimates of population and poverty. The school districts for which we have estimates were identified in the 2007 school district mapping survey, which asked about all school districts as of January 1, 2008 and used school district boundaries for the 2007-2008 school year. The 2008 estimates are consistent with the population controls and income concepts used in the 2008 American Community Survey single-year estimates.
There is uncertainty associated with all estimates in this program. For a discussion of estimating the relative magnitude of this uncertainty in SAIPE school district estimates, please see Quantifying Relative Error in the School District Estimates.Excel format:
