Student Residence Locations and Associated Census Data. Interim Report.
Landini, Albert; Bannister, R. Wayne
The primary purpose of this project was to build a data base that would aid in identifying disadvantaged persons and later in identifying handicapped persons in the services areas of the Los Angeles Community College District. Five main steps were involved: (1) finding a machine readable file of all enrolled students in the District; (2) defining the District in terms of consus tracts included within it; (3) obtaining and installing the necessary software and reference files at the District's computer center and preparing special computer programs; (4) preparing the geographic data for input to the computer mapping program; and (5) using specialized software to add census tract identifiers to each student record. Several technical tools were produced and/or installed for the District: L.A. Co. ACG, a geographic base file; ADMATCH, an address matching program; SYMAP, a computer mapping program; base map of district outline on county census tract map; listing of all 1970 census tracts in county and in District; "An Outline" L.A. Co.; "B Data Points" county 1970 census tract centroids; "C Otolegend" District outline; ten student enrollment maps; eleven census data maps; student enrollment report; and census data report. (KM)
