The SCI is based on a disaggregation of the dissimilarity index of segregation. The dataset includes the level of segregation in the school district. Schools' SCI, as well as total enrollment and "minority" enrollment (defined as students that are Black or Hispanic). The data also provide information on total and minority enrollment in the schools' "neighborhood", defined as schools serving the same grade within a mile radius of the school's location. The radius is larger in less densely populated areas.
