School-Age Population Estimates

School-Age Population Estimates

The School Age Population Estimates are required by the Code of Virginia to distribute sales and use tax among the school divisions of Virginia. These data, produced annually by the Demographics Research Group, estimate the 5-19 year-old population of each school division and town in Virginia. In 2011, $1,121,088,942 of the 1.125% state sales tax was distributed to Virginia's 136 school divisions.
