Title: Education Demographic and Geographic Estimates (EDGE) Geocodes: Public Schools and Local Education Agencies, 2016-2017
Description: This document describes the content of geocode files developed for schools and LEAs reported in the 2016-2017 Common Core of Data (CCD) school and agency universe as of November 2017, including point locations (latitude/longitude values) for schools and LEAs developed by the Education Demographic and Geographic Estimates (EDGE) program. These data are needed to address a variety of spatially-oriented tasks and research questions. They provide information needed to construct NCES school-based surveys; they provide indicators needed to help determine program eligibility; and they provide the foundation for determining geographic associations with other types of entities. The geocode files in the CCD include the unique school and agency identifiers assigned by CCD, and this shared ID can be used to integrate the geocodes with the CCD directory files.
