Using GIS to Analyze School Exam Scores
Track: Statistical Analysis
Authors: Lixin Huang
GIS Spatial Statistic tools are used to find the relationship between school scores and the socio-economic factors, such as Marital Status, Education Level, Income, Unemployment Rate, and so on. The socio-economic data are obtained from the latest Census American Community Survey. Since each school has its own attendance boundary, socio-economic factors data are processed and overlapped with the boundary. Due to scores involving multiple subjects, one model will be built for each subject.
