Residential Demographic Multipliers

Public School-Age Children (PSAC) are defined as: The school-age children attending public school.

Total school-age children (SAC)
or number of persons in the household of school age, defined as those 5-17 years old.
(The SAC is the same as the combined number of household members in the 5-13 and 14-17 age categories.)

According to this Rutgers report people that buy houses that sell above $329,500.00 will have less children than,
(smaller families), then people that buy houses that sell below $329,500.00.

Also listed but not shown is 3 bedroom homes would yield 0.50 PSAC and a 2 bedroom home would yield 0.21 PSAC.
