Metadata Updated: November 10, 2020

EDFacts General Information, 2016–17 (EDFacts GI:2016–17) is one of 17 'topics' identified in the EDFacts documentation (in this database, each 'topic' is entered as a separate study). EDFacts GI:2016–17 (ed.gov/about/inits/ed/edfacts) annually collects cross-sectional data from states about directory and descriptive information of the education units at the school, LEA, and SEA levels. EDFacts GI:2016–17 data were collected using the EDFacts Submission System (ESS), a centralized portal, and their submission by states is mandatory and required for benefits. Not submitting the required reports by a state constitutes a failure to comply with law and may have consequences for federal funding to the state. Key statistics produced from EDFacts GI:2016–17 are from 7 data groups with information on Directory Information, Free and Reduced Price Lunch, Staff FTE, Teachers FTE, grades Offered, Magnet Status, and Student Membership. For the purposes of this system, data groups are referred to as 'variables', as a result of the structure and format of EDFacts data.
