School Boundaries contains three layers of geographic information for over 10,000 school districts in the United States, including 95% coverage of school points, 100% of school districts, and 89% of school attendance zones.
These attributes, taken from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), are validated and updated quarterly, reflecting coverage changes since the last release. Additional attribute tables track regional compilation variations and school data complexities across states and regions, allowing for a more consistent methodology and deeper analysis.
Other separate products are available to supplement School Boundaries at the school and district level, such as:
First, geospatial data, map images, or address lists from school districts or individual school websites are collected, which is used as the foundation for School Attendance Zone Boundaries. Next, school locations are rooftop-validated from satellite images. Finally, school data from NCES as well as other third-party data sources are used to fill additional attribution fields.
Enrich your existing data with ready-to-use administrative and industry-specific boundaries to perform territory analyses.
Exploit the geographic limits of census dissemination to perform land use and demographic studies, as well as social, economic, and market research.
