The files described below contain financial information (revenue, expenditure, debt, and assets) for public elementary-secondary school systems collected as a part of an annual survey of local governments authorized by law under Title 13, United States Code, Section 182.



Contents


 Data File Formats

Files containing all data items surveyed, data item flags, and summary variables displayed in the report tables are available in Excel and comma-delimited formats. Beginning with 2007, files in SAS format are no longer available. However, please use the following code to read the comma-delimited files into SAS. 

Note: This code uses the 'elsec05.txt' file as an example. You may change the library and file storage paths, as needed. 

         libname elsec05 'C:\temp';

         proc import datafile='C:\temp\elsec05.txt'
                                out=elsec05.elsec05
                                dbms=dlm
                                replace;
                    delimiter=',';
                    getnames=yes;
         run;

The files may be downloaded from the Census Bureau's website under Public Elementary-Secondary Education Finance Data.

State-level Tables. Users may download the state totals data presented in tables 1 through 14, and table 18 in the Public Education Finances report. Data are available in an Excel spreadsheet that contains a tab for each table.

All Data Items. These files contain data for all items on the F-33 survey form, as well as unit identifiers, descriptive variables, and summary data items.  An Excel spreadsheet and a comma-delimited text file are available for download. Each file contains data for all school systems. 

The comma-delimited file allows users to import data into a database application. When importing the comma-delimited file into a database, data users should specify the format of the following fields as 'text' (rather than 'general' or 'numeric'): STATE, IDCENSUS, CONUM, CSA, CBSA, SCHLEV, NCESID, and YRDATA. The file names and sizes are as follows:

Data Item Flags. Beginning with FY 1999, the F-33 school system finance files include data item flags to indicate whether a data item was reported by the state education agency or adjusted by the Census Bureau.  The data item flag files are presented in the same formats - Excel and comma-delimited - as the data item files described above. There are no flags for the summary data items, such as TOTALREV and TOTALEXP.

 Additional Information on Data Items

Census Bureau unit identification code (IDCENSUS)

Identification Number (IDCENSUS field) Schema and Type of Government Code:

The first 2 characters of the IDCENSUS field stand for the state code. The 3rd character represents the "type of government" code, described below. Characters 4 through 6 represent the county code. Characters 7 through 14 uniquely identify the government unit. For an independent school system, this government unit is the system itself. For dependent school systems, characters 1 through 9 of the IDCENSUS field match that of the parent government on which the system is dependent. Characters 10 through 14 uniquely identify the dependent school system where more than one system is dependent on the parent government.

FIPS and Statistical Area codes

Three codes allow data users to identify units with specific geographic areas. The codes included are: 

 Code

Description

 CONUM

Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) state code and county number (5-digit)

 CSA

Consolidated Statistical Area Code (3-digit)

 CBSA

Core-Based Statistical Area Code (5-digit)

Information on the FIPS state and county codes is available at
http://www.itl.nist.gov/fipspubs/co-codes/states.htm.

The Core-Based Statistical Area Code (CBSA) indicates that an agency is associated with a recognized population nucleus and adjacent communities that have a high degree of integration with that nucleus, designated by the U.S. Government as a metropolitan or micropolitan statistical area. The Consolidated Statistical Area code (CSA) indicates whether a school district's location is associated with a combined statistical area. A CSA may comprise two or more metropolitan or micropolitan statistical areas.

Data Item Flags 

For each data item shown on the F-33 survey form there is a companion flag. These flag variables are identified by the name of the data item preceded by an "FL_"; e.g. FL_T06, FL_E13. The guide to these flags is displayed below: 

 Flag

Description

 R

 A

 S

 N

Per Pupil Expenditure Amounts 

The per pupil expenditure amounts included in the state totals and individual unit files from the published report are derived from current spending totals and the fall membership data. Per pupil expenditure does not include spending for nonelementary-secondary programs (community service, adult education), or spending by a school system for students not included in its fall membership counts.
