January 2016. 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 social characteristics data. The U.S. national scope ACS 2014 (released December 2015) School District Demographic-Economic Dataset contains approximately 600 subject matter items tabulated for each school district organized into four subject matter groups:
  • General Demographics
  • Social Characteristics -- this section (see similar ACS 2012 data)
  • Economic Characteristics
  • Housing Characteristics

These data provide information and insights not available by examining data of students and schools alone -- or any other data. See more about the importance of these data.

Data reviewed in this section are based on the American Community Survey (ACS) 2014 5-year estimates for school districts defined as of the 2013-14 school year. See notes on importance of these data. See similar ranking tables for: Census Tracts | ZIP Codes | State, Metro & County.

Patterns of Educational Attainment by School District
This view shows percent population 25 years and over with bachelor's degree by school district; Texas and southcentral U.S. The thematic pattern shows item S067 shown in the interactive table below. Click graphic for larger view, more detail and legend color/data intervals. This map illustrates the relative ease to gain insights into school district patterns using geospatial data analytics tools.

Using the Interactive Table
Use the interactive ranking table in this section to view, query, rank, compare social characteristics of the population for these areas. The scroll box shown below lists each of the subject matter items available for each area via the ranking table. In the subject matter items scrollbox, subject matter items are organized into to mini-tables with related items. The number at the left of the subject matter item is also used as the short name for the subject matter item in the column header in the ranking table.

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.
