Action

Research and document your district’s higher education student population demographics.

Why

Knowing your district’s demographics helps you understand who lives in your district, can impact the types of businesses you attract and activities/initiatives you plan, and will help you see emerging trends.

How

Track information such as commuter status, age, major, disposable income, race/ethnicity, gender, and marital status. Collaborate with the higher education institution to collect this information.
