Examining Neighborhood Change


This section provides a visual analysis of demographic-economic patterns of Wichita Unified School District, KS school attendance zones (SAZ). The maps were developed using the CV XE GIS and associated SAZ geodemographic database. Develop wide-ranging variations of these maps and tabular data on your own computer; integrate your own data; add other types of geography; zoom-in to specific schools and streets. Contact us for more information (mention school attendance zones).

Use the interactive table at http://proximityone.com/saz.htm to view, compare, rank SAZs based on demographic attributes provided for each SAZ. Unlike enrollment and administratively reported data for schools, these demographic-economic data are for the SAZ total population including age, gender, race/origin, educational attainment, employment by industry/occupation, income/poverty, language spoken, housing age, housing structure, housing value, housing value , among many other attributes. See more about these data (below, in this section).

About the Data & Usage
School attendance zones are part of an important collection of small area geographies useful to understand demographic-economic patterns, characteristics and trends. Related geographies include census blocks, census block groups, census tracts, ZIP code areas and school districts.

A School Attendance Zone (SAZ) is a geographic area served by an individual K-12 school. SAZ geographic and demographic-economic data are used by schools, school districts, researchers, policy makers and other stakeholders to examine relationships between areas served by schools and related geographic areas (e.g., city/county). Wide-ranging decision-making is made possible by visually examining school catchment areas with related geography and demographic-economic measures. Needs of the school age population can be better analyzed resulting in possible improved educational outcomes. Characteristics of the population served by a school, and its special needs, can be better understood. Awareness of the number of students in areas hit hard by natural disasters could aid relief efforts; the Department of Homeland Security can use this information for planning disaster relief programs in case of a national disaster. These resources can aid school districts in analyzing need and distributing funds/resources to schools within its system.
