Percent of Children Eligible for Free or Reduced Price Lunch By County ( 2014 to 2015)

Today’s map of the day shows the percent of children eligible for free or reduced price lunch by county from 2014 to 2015. From the map we can see that a large portion of counties within the southern states and some western states indicated by the darker shading. In contrast overall we can see a large portion of counties within some of the mid-western states are shaded yellow/yellow orange indicating a lower percent of children within these counties are eligible for free or reduced priced lunch. Interestingly, some states are predominately shaded dark, such as Mississippi, indicating the majority of the children who reside in these counties are eligible for free or reduced lunch.
