The importance of understanding the demographic-economic make-up and trends for school districts can hardly be overstated.
Community and educational challenges and opportunities are shaped by demographic-economic dynamics.
Only by knowing "where we are" can we develop the most effective plans for improvement.
This section is focused on tools, resources and methods that you can use to access, integrate and analyze school district economic characteristics data.
The U.S. national scope ACS 2012
School District Demographic-Economic Dataset contains approximately 600 subject matter items
tabulated for each school district organized into four subject matter groups:
Economic Characteristics -- this section (see similar ACS 2011 data)
These data provide information and insights not available by examining data of students and schools alone -- or any other data.

Data reviewed in this section are based on the American Community Survey (ACS)
2012 5-year estimates
for school districts defined as of the 2011-12 school year.

Importance of School District Demographic-Economic Data
The American Community Survey provides "richer" demographic-economic characteristics for national scope school districts.
While Census 2010 provides data similar to those items in the General Demographics section, only ACS
sourced data provide details on topics such as income and poverty,
labor force and employment, housing value and costs, educational participation and attainment, language spoken
at home, among many related items. The approximate 600 items accessible via the dataset
are supplemented by a wide range of additional subject matter. ACS school district data are updated annually in December of each year for each/all school districts.
