New Jersey Data

ELC maintains an extensive database of education indicators for the state of New Jersey. Spanning twenty years, the database incorporates statistics on an extensive list of education topics, including school funding, student demographics, student performance, the teaching workforce, and community context.

Demographics: racial/ethnic composition, free/reduced lunch eligibility, limited English proficiency rates, and special education classification rates.

School Funding Data: state and district summaries of funding relative to the NJ’s school finance formula; need-adjusted, per pupil funding comparisons by district.

Secondary Data: graduation rates and pathway data.

Preschool Data: enrollment data for former Abbott and non-Abbott districts. 

ELC has used the database to produce numerous reports and policy briefs which are available on the Publications page.
