Group II contains 212 cities having a population of not less than 30,000 or more than 99,999 and each of which constitutes a school administrative unit. Group III contains 643 cities each having a population of not less that 10,000 or more than 29,999 and each of which constitutes a school administrative unit. Group IV contains 1,944 cities each having a population of not less than 2,500 or more than 9,999 and each constituting a school administrative unit. According to the U.S. Bureau of Census, there were, in 1930, 3,165 cities in the United States each with a population of not less than 2,500. Of these 3,165 cities, each of 2,876 constituted a single school district, and each of 13 others constituted two or more school districts. Data for this report were supplied by the school official in these 2,889 cities.
