Education (Schools)

Provider: Spatial Insights, Inc.

To supplement existing US Census and business data, Spatial Insights has assembled extensively attributed databases of geocoded school locations: K to12, comprised of elementary and secondary schools, and Higher Ed, which includes college and university locations.

Data for the more than 103,800 elementary and secondary schools was assembled from government surveys conducted annually. Among its more than 500 attributes, K to 12 boasts student enrollment by grade, student-teacher ratio, and gender and ethnicity of the student population for each grade level. Specialty information provides the count of students eligible to receive free or reduced lunches plus migrant enrollment.

Also compiled from information queried directly from the educational institutions, the Higher Ed dataset features over 9,800 colleges and universities nationwide. In addition to name and address fields, attributes include type of school (public, private, or nonprofit), number of years (four-year or two-year), and degrees offered (bachelors, masters, associates), enrollment, and tuition fees.

The K to 12 data are available for the 2010/2011, 2009/2010, 2008/2009, 2007/2008, 2006/2007, 2005/2006, 2004/2005, 2003/2004, 2002/2003, 2001/2002, 2000/2001, 1999/2000, 1998/1999, and 1997/1998 school years. The vintage of the Higher Ed data is also 2010/2011. Both datasets are GIS-ready, having been geocoded to the highest possible level of accuracy. and are available in a number of industry standard formats, including .TAB, .SHP, and .DBF.
