Demographic Factors Related to Enrollment Projections. Draft.
School districts must analyze demographic data carefully if they hope to deal effectively with changing enrollment patterns. Sources of relevant data include local planning boards, utility companies, government records of vital statistics, carefully conducted school censuses, and municipal records of housing construction and property transfers. The cohort survival method is the most common method for analyzing enrollment data. The type of analysis selected to establish survival ratios, whether based on straight averages or weighted (trend) averages, should be appropriate to the particular conditions of the school district.
