Definition: Number of public primary school students who are eligible for free or reduced price lunch.

Notes: Primary schools defined as those with lowest grade of "Pre-K" through 3 and highest grade of "Pre-K" through 8.  Poverty rate defined as the share of children eligible for free or reduced lunch. Excludes metro areas in which 10 percent or more of students attend schools that do not report valid data on free and reduced lunch eligibility and those for which the computed student poverty rate differs dramatically from that which would be expected based on Census child poverty data. Data for 1999-2001 geocoded from zip codes to metropolitan areas. Pre-K students not included for metros in the following states in the specified years:  1999-2000: AL, CA, KY, WY.   2000-2001: AL, CA, KY, WY, TN.   2007-2008: CA, MI, SD.  2010-2011:  CA, OR, MI.
