The U. S. Bureau of the Census has released 2008 income and poverty estimates for every school district and county in the United States.

The information is part of the Small Area Income and Poverty Estimates Program and includes data for 3,142 counties and almost 14,000 Title I-eligible school districts in the U. S.

More information and a link to the data are on the “Just Released” page of the library’s government document department:  http://www.unk.edu/academics/library.aspx?id=49681.
