Developing and Evaluating Methods for Using American Community Survey Data to Support the School Meals Programs: Interim Report
The School Attendance Boundary Information System (SABINS) (National Science Foundation, 2009) is a 2-year proposal by Salvatore Saporito that received funding from the National Science Foundation in 2009. The project is to establish a spatial database of school attendance boundaries for the 800 most populous school districts in the country. SABINS data are planned to be distributed via the National Historic geographic information system website (see http://www.nhgis.org/ [accessed May 2010]). The intention is that these boundaries would be compatible with the TIGER database to facilitate social science research. If this project is successful, it may make it easier for school districts to obtain accurate digitized school attendance boundaries.
