The files in the data directory contain estimates of population and poverty. The school districts for which we have estimates were identified in the 2011 school district mapping survey, which asked about all school districts as of January 1, 2012 and used school district boundaries for the 2011-2012 school year. The 2011 estimates are consistent with the population controls and income concepts used in the 2011 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:
The text files contain only data - no labels, no table headers, no titles. A description of the contents of the files can be found in the file "README" in the file directory.
