Project Description

Summary:  View help for Summary This dataset contains information related to public school resources measured at the county level for ten southern U.S. states (Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, Kentucky, and Tennessee) from 1910 to 1940. School resource measures include enrollment, attendance, number of schools, number of teachers, revenues from local taxes, expenditures, and salary information.
