Low-income student enrollment for each school district is derived from the percentage of students who meet ANY ONE of the following definitions of Low-income:

The student receives Transitional Aid to Families benefits; or
The student is eligible for food stamps.

Data Source

From the Mass. Department of Elementary and Secondary Education Massachusetts School and District Profiles: Enrollment Data.


Data as of October of the given school year.  Example: 2013-14 numbers were collected October 2013.

These data on the number of low-income students and the MA Kids Count indicator on students receiving free and reduced lunch -- are essentially the same measure.  The numbers differ slightly based on the time of collection and source of the data.
