What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the average number of public school students per teacher in the region. It does not measure class size.
Why this is important: 
The student-teacher ratio gives a rough idea of the amount of individualized attention from teachers that is available to each student. Although it is not the same as class size, the student-teacher ratio is often a reasonable alternative on which to base estimates of class size. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, larger schools tend to have higher student-teacher ratios.
Technical Note:  The distribution is based on data from 3,055 U.S. counties and county equivalents.
