|Title||Arlington County Planning Units|
Hello, I am following up on my request for planning unit data. Thank you for putting the map in ArlGIS, I've downloaded it and put it to use already. What I really would like is data just like the PDF above, but for elementary, middle, and high schools. I don't need this in ArlGIS, I can match them to the PUs very easily now myself. One other piece of information that would be helpful is the average across all censored PUs. For example, if you tell offer the average number of students across all PUs that are censored, we can create distributions ourselves from which we draw individual values (which are probably about as good as the projections anyway), all without revealing any individual or private information. Thanks!
Also, unrelated, but where did the zoning, civic association, and zipcode ArlGIS polygon sets go? A ton of datasets disappeared from the site recently.
Building a web tool to generate school boundaries, so that users can get a sense for the types of tradeoffs that need to be made to craft school boundaries.
|County Staff Notes|
Arlington Public Schools is consulting internally about the level of effort required to provide student information at the Planning Unit level on the County’s GIS portal and satisfying privacy concerns related to making such student information public. In the meantime, please reference the APS statistics page for information on student demographics. At this time we cannot publish the enrollment information but will leave this request open until there is a determination on APS's ability to share student data at the Planning Unit level on the County’s GIS portal.
