Is anyone familiar with data that that has or could give provide a measure of school quality at the county level?


The Department of Education maintains rating data on schools in a large number of categories. You can build your own tables here:


The US Dept. of Ed also has related search tools here:


The link below will allow you to very a variety of aggregated data at state, county, school district and school level. Note, only a minimal amount of data is aggregated at county level.

  • Everything that I've seen on those sites is at the state level. Did you have something in mind when you suggested them for finding county level data? – timothy.s.lau Feb 17 '15 at 16:39
  • @timothy.s.lau - I updated my answer. – Andrew - OpenGeoCode Feb 17 '15 at 16:48
  • Using the table generator I was only able to get county demographics, not achievement. Did you have something in mind related to achievement when suggesting this option? – timothy.s.lau Feb 17 '15 at 16:50
  • I recheck the table and express generators. They are limited to demographic and financial data. But they do have FTE counts, expenditure per student, etc. The USEd has a lot of survey data. You may have to hand find what you are looking for from their catalog: nces.ed.gov/surveys/SurveyGroups.asp?Group=1 – Andrew - OpenGeoCode Feb 17 '15 at 17:05
