Decennial Census School District Project Planning Report. Working Paper Series.
Glimpse, Warren G.
This document provides background information related to the 1990 Census Mapping Project to assist in evaluating the processes, products, users, and users of data from that program as part of the planning activity for the corresponding Census 2000 activity. Analysis of the data items frequently used, with particular attention to the School District Data Book, resulted in some key recommendations for a plan to develop a minimal 2001 census school districts special tabulation. The Census 2000 school district special tabulation should be used to produce several public use data products reflecting boundaries as of the school year 1999-2000. The public data base should be released on CD-ROM no later than December 23, 2001. It is also suggested that a summary report be prepared using these data to assess and report on the condition of education in the United States. An appendix lists the top 100 file subject matter items. (SLD)
