The Common Core of Data (CCD) nonfiscal surveys consist of data submitted annually to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) by state education agencies (SEAs) in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the four U.S. Island Areas (American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and the U.S. Virgin Islands), the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA), and the Bureau of Indian Education (BIE). The purpose of the CCD nonfiscal surveys is to provide a listing of all schools (103,813 in 2010-11) and agencies (18,478 in 2010-11) 2 that provide free public elementary and secondary education in the United States and its jurisdictions, along with basic descriptive statistical information on each school and agency listed. The CCD system provides variables that enable the data provider and the data user to identify and select records according to the categories of interest to them. The Local Education Agency Universe data file includes the following variables: NCES agency ID number, state agency ID number, agency name, phone number, mailing address, physical location address, agency type code, supervisory union number, American National Standards Institute (ANSI) state and county code, county name, core based statistical area (CBSA) code, metropolitan/micropolitan code, metropolitan status code, district locale code, congressional district code, operational status code, BIE agency status, low/high grade span offered, agency charter status, number of schools, number of full-time-equivalent (FTE) teachers, number of ungraded students, number of PK-12 students, number of special education/Individualized Education Program (IEP) students, number of English language learner (ELL) students, instructional staff fields, support staff fields, and a flag indicating whether student counts by race/ethnicity were reported by five or seven racial/ethnic categories. The document contains a user's guide and four appendices: (1) Record Layout for the Common Core of Data Local Education Agency Universe Survey: School Year 2010-11; (2) Value Distribution, Field Frequencies, and Data Tables for the Common Core of Data Local Education Agency Universe Survey: School Year 2010-11; (3) Glossary for the Common Core of Data: School Year 2010-11; and (4) State Notes for the Common Core of Data: School Year 2010-11.
