School District Poverty Estimates

The U.S. Census Bureau's Small Area Income and Poverty Estimates program (SAIPE) produces annually updated school district poverty estimates to support the administration and allocation of Title I funding under the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (the most recent reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965). These data include estimates of total population, number of children ages 5 to 17, and number of related children ages 5 to 17 in families in poverty. SAIPE school district estimates are developed from model-based county estimates and inputs from the decennial census and federal tax information. These estimates are provided for geographically defined school districts identified by the biennial school district boundary update.
