About My Studies

Increasingly, school districts are deciding to include demographic data analysis and school enrollment projections in their planning processes. Typically, these studies are used to kick off campaigns for new facilities or enhancements to existing facilities. In some cases, these studies have been used to project special population groups and enrollment impacts within districts, determine the "tensile strength" of existing facilities and programs, or to compare in-house enrollment projections. In other situations, school districts will use demographic studies to plan alternative use of buildings, extracurricular activities and programs, and curriculum changes.

With differing needs and requirements for these types of studies, school districts have found it beneficial to choose the study components that correspond more directly to their immediate planning task environments. My studies are customized to meet these needs.


Many of our clients require student enrollment projections or an evaluation of existing projections and methodologies. We use a cohort component method to project grade-by-grade enrollments and live births to project Kindergarten class sizes. Geographic information systems technology is used to geocode or address match births and, where attendance areas do not completely contain student enrollments, student records to develop geographically consistent enrollment counts.

With the capability of analyzing student locations, school districts have developed optimal transportation routes, redrawn school district attendance areas, and assessed the impacts of planned housing developments within their boundaries. These and other uses of geodemographic studies provide a data-driven foundation for administrative decision-making and public engagement campaigns.
