The calculated data elements in this section are considered important
components of an education facility's data system. They are useful
for comparisons between various entities as well as for measuring
the health and status of the education facility. The calculated
data elements are built through computations of unit records or
data elements, including those from student, staff, finance, and
facilities information systems.
