NCES 2019112 Education Demographic and Geographic Estimates Program (EDGE): School Neighborhood Poverty Estimates, 2016-2017
The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) Education Demographic and Geographic Estimates (EDGE) program developed school neighborhood poverty estimates to provide an indicator of the economic conditions in neighborhoods where schools are located. These spatially interpolated demographic and economic (SIDE) estimates apply spatial statistical methods to existing sources of income and poverty data developed by the U.S. Census Bureau to produce new indicators with additional flexibility to support educational research. The economic conditions of neighborhoods around schools may or may not reflect the neighborhood conditions of students who attend the schools. However, supplemental information about school neighborhoods may be useful to combine with student-level or school-level information to provide a clearer picture of the overall educational environment.

NCES 2017039 Sidestepping the Box: Designing a Supplemental Poverty Indicator for School Neighborhoods
School and neighborhood poverty indicators are a familiar feature in educational research, but the scope and specificity of available indicators is limited. As a result, researchers frequently rely on data from proxy neighborhood geographies out of operational necessity rather than analytic choice. This study examines common constraints of neighborhood data used for educational research and proposes the use of school-centered neighborhood poverty estimates based on data from the U.S. Census Bureauís American Community Survey (ACS) and estimation techniques borrowed from spatial statistics. This study tested the feasibility of producing the proposed indicator by developing neighborhood poverty estimates for 1,793 Ohio elementary schools. Initial results suggest that the proposed indicator may provide a useful supplement to existing school-level poverty indicators and offer additional clarity about economic conditions in neighborhoods where schools are located.

NCES 2018027 Education Demographic and Geographic Estimates Program (EDGE): School Neighborhood Poverty Estimates - Documentation
The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) Education Demographic and Geographic Estimates (EDGE) program developed the spatially interpolated demographic and economic (SIDE) estimates to extract new value from existing sources of poverty data. SIDE uses geographic and statistical modeling to provide estimates of neighborhood poverty around specific geographic locations. The estimates provided in the School Neighborhood Poverty Estimates (SNP) files reflect economic conditions of neighborhoods where schools are physically located.
