November 2018. In 2017, the U.S. median age was 38.1 years while states ranged from 21.7 years (Lakewood Township School District, NJ) to 67.6 years (Sumter County School District, FL) among the largest 1,042 school districts. See item/column D017 in the interactive table below to view, rank, compare, analyze states based on this measure for 2017 ... in context of related general demographic characteristics attributes.

Visual Analysis of 1,042 Largest School Districts
The following map shows markers/locations of the 1,042 largest school districts based on 2017 population. Create variations of this view using the "US1.GIS" GIS project installed by default with all versions of the CV XE GIS software.

This section is focused on tools, resources and methods that you can use to access, integrate and analyze general demographic characteristics for the 1,042 school districts (of total 13,300 school districts -- see more below) with 2017 population 65,000 or more population. These districts include 32,127,429 of the school age population (ages 5-17) in 2017, or 59.7% of the U.S. total school age population (53,853,524). In terms of school age population as a percent of total population, these districts range from 4.5% (Sumter County School District, FL) to 28.7% (Lakewood Township School District, NJ). These data will update with 2018 estimates in September 2019.

Using the Interactive Table
Use the interactive table below to view, query, rank, compare general demographics of the population, households and families 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.

These 1,042 districts include elementary, secondary and unified school districts. Some of these district overlap the same geographic area. There are 961 districts that cover unduplicated geography. The total school age population (32,127,429) is based on the sum of the population for these 961 districts.

About these Demographic-Economic Data .. goto top
Data used in this section are estimates developed from the American Community Survey (ACS). These data differ from administratively reported data (enrollment, etc.).

This section is based on data from the ACS 2017 1-year estimates. These estimates are developed for areas (school districts and otherwise) having population of 65,000 or more. It happens that there are 1,042 school districts of this size.

Data are for the total resident population in the district. Data are not shown separately for charter schools as charter schools have no defined boundaries. If a charter school located in district X has students from district Y, attributes of those students and households are shown in data for district Y.

In December 2018, the ACS 2017 5 year estimates become available. The 5-year estimates are centric to 2015 whereas data used here are for 2017. Similar tables as shown in these sections can be developed that include all school districts using the ACS 5 year estimates.

The importance of understanding the demographic-economic make-up and trends 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.

The American Community Survey provides "richer" demographic-economic characteristics for national scope wide-ranging geographic areas. 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. These data are updated annually in December of each year for each/all political/statistical areas, including census tracts, ZIP code areas and block groups.
