|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.
