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 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.
