Attainment of Regional Living Wage (Pell Grant Recipients)
Headcount of students by district who were enrolled in the district in the year prior to the reporting year, were not enrolled system-wide or at any transfer institution in the reporting year, and were reported as earning wages greater than or equal to the regional living wage for the district in the reporting year who received a Federal Pell Grant in the system in the reporting year or any prior year.
A student's reported wage is compared to the living wage for one adult, for the county with the greatest area of overlap with the district boundary.
The county-specific living wage data is sourced from the Insight Center for Community Economic Development Self-Sufficiency Tool.
