  • Abstract

    The geographic cross-reference files have been created to allow the user to prepare additional data summaries relevant to school districts. Another use for the geographic cross-reference files is to provide the ability to equate detailed record files having school district codes with census geographic units. This capability could be used to relate administrative record summaries with census geographic data. This data collection is the most current georeference file for the years 1973-1974. While it does not include all United States geography, it can be used to link district data with data available by other census areas. Variables include state, county, minor civil division (MCD), MCD-place, census tract, block group, enumeration district (ED), population of block group, school district code, school district type, percentage of population in school district, place description, congressional district, school district name, grade range, standard metropolitan statistical area (SMSA), and government ID code.
