School children approved for free lunches come from the lowest family income levels, and those approved for reduced price lunches come from somewhat high but sill low income families.These data are useful when measuring the number of children from low income families enrolled in K-12 education, and headed for higher education in each state. The data used in these tables were prepared by Jeffrey Derr and Anne Pauls, Child Nutrition Division, Food and Nutrition Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture. 7/11/2014

College Participation Rates for Students from Low Income Families by State, AY 1993 to AY 2013
This Excel workbook contains state and national data used to calculate college participation rates for students from low income families for the years AY 1993 to AY 2013. This rate is the ratio of dependent Pell Grant Recipients divided by 4th to 9th graders nine years earlier, approved for free or reduced-price school lunches.
The data for each state includes: dependent Pell Grant recipients by state of residence, 4th to 9th grade enrollments in public schools, the percent of children approved for subsidized school lunches, the number of 4th to 9th graders in these low income families, and their rate of enrollment in college nine years later. These data show the number of children in these low income families in the K-12 pipeline headed toward higher education in each state. 7/11/2014

This large Excel workbook contains Pell Grant recipient data by state, by institutional control, and by year, 1976-77 to 2012-13.
The data are compiled from annual Pell Grant End of Year reports prepared by the U.S. Department of Education. The recipient data included both the numbers of Pell Grant recipients and the Pell Grant dollars they received for each academic year. The Pell Grant recipient data are classified in two ways: first by location of institution, then by state of residence of the recipients. The difference between these two is net migration of Pell Grant recipients and dollars into or out of each state. 7/11/2014
