Working Paper Number RRS2007-11
Jerry J. Maples and William R. Bell
Component ID: #ti593585771


The Small Area Income and Poverty Estimates (SAIPE) program provides estimates for selected income and poverty statistics for states, counties, and school districts. The main objective of this program is to provide updated estimates of income and poverty statistics for the administration of federal programs and the allocation of federal funds to local jurisdictions. In particular, the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 directs the Department of Education to distribute Title I basic and concentration grants directly to school districts on the basis of the most recent Census Bureau estimates of school-age children in poverty in each school district in the U.S.
