Scope of Data
Data are based on an annual survey of public elementary and secondary education systems, mostly school districts, conducted by the Census Bureau under sponsorship of the U.S. Department of Education. The survey covers all U.S. school districts.

Fiscal Year. With the exception of school systems in Alabama, Nebraska, Texas, Washington, and the District of Columbia, the 2014 fiscal year for school systems in all states began on July 1, 2013, and ended on June 30, 2014. AL: Oct 1 - Sept 30; NE, TX, WA: Sept 1 - August 31; DC: Oct 1 - Sept 30.

Enrollment. Enrollment data are based on data reported by school districts and state education agencies for the 2013-14 school year. Total enrollment for school districts in the ranking table is 48.2 million students.

Total revenue data are shown in the ranking table in thousands of dollars. Financial data are shown on cash basis. In many cases financial data will differ from financial data reported by school districts due to wide-ranging different accounting procedures used district to district. Data shown in the ranking table use standardized accounting categories across all districts except as noted in supplemental notes (not shown in this section).

Limitations of Data
These data are reported by school districts. They are not estimates subject to estimation error. However, financial data reporting and categorization differs from state to state. As a result, some data cells show as zero while in fact the data for that cell is included in another category, such as "Other."
