School District Estimates for 2009

The files in the data directory contain estimates of population and poverty.  The school districts for which we have estimates were identified in the 2009 school district mapping survey, which asked about all school districts as of January 1, 2010 and used school district boundaries for the 2009-2010 school year.  The 2009 estimates are consistent with the population controls and income concepts used in the 2009 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:
  • USSD09.xls - Estimates for every school district in the nation
Text format:
  • USSD09.txt - Estimates for every school district in the nation
  • sd09_[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.
