For the approximate largest 3,300 school districts with population 20,000 and over, wide-ranging demographic updates are available (as of 12/8/08) from the 2005-07 "3-Year" Census Bureau American Community Survey (ACS). A main importance of these data is that they are the first set of wide-ranging demographic data available for this larger set of school districts since Census 2000. ACS data for approximately 900 school districts with population 65,000 or more are included in the annual ACS data releases. They enable assessment of more recent characteristics than provided by Census 2000. They enable assessment of how some demographic measures have changed since 2000. There are a few new types of measures that can provide different insights.

This document shows an example of the use of these data. Use the ranking table presented below to examine the set of 3,300 school districts and the commute to work time. The commute to work time is one of several hundred subject matter items in the ACS 05-07 data. These data reflect tabulation of the questionnaire item "travel time is from door to door" -- "enter a one-way commute time for this personís usual daily commute from home to work last week. Include time waiting for public transportation or picking up passengers in a carpool."
