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 FY 2015, $1,270,182,235 (1.125% of the state sales and use taxes) was distributed to Virginia's 135 school divisions. Go here for school enrollment projections.
