Welcome to SCSEPED.org
SCSEPED.org provides all Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) grantees and sub-recipients access to information about SCSEP authorized positions and current enrollments in each county in the country. For state grantees and national grantees, the authorized positions displayed are those defined by Equitable Distribution (ED) for each program year. For set-aside grantees, the authorized positions are those listed in the grant award; these set-aside positions are separate from and additional to any state or national grantee positions authorized by ED. The enrollment data are updated each quarter and always reflect the number of enrollments active in SPARQ on the first day of the current quarter.
Three functions are available to users:
Tables. There are separate tables for each state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. These tables are accessed by clicking on Tables in the menu bar at the top of the page. Dropdown menus at the top left corner of the screen allow the user to select the state and the program year. The tables list each county in the state, along with its FIPS number (the Census Bureau’s identifier for the county), followed by three columns of data for each grantee that operates in the state: the number of authorized positions assigned to the grantee in each county, the number of current enrollments in each county, and the variance in each county between the number of authorized positions and the number of enrollments. A positive variance number means that the grantee is over-enrolled in that county compared to ED, and a negative variance number means the grantee is under-enrolled.
The first set of columns lists the state grantee; subsequent columns list the national grantees that operate in the state. Set-aside grantees that operate in that state are listed in the columns farthest to the right. A box at the top right corner of the page summarizes at the state level the authorized positions, enrollments, and variance for the state grantee, all national grantees, and all set-aside grantees.
The button in the top left corner under the dropdown allows the user to download all the state table data into a spreadsheet.
Maps. The data in the state tables can be visualized on a set of maps. When you click on Maps in the menu bar at the top of the page, the nationwide map opens in a separate browser page. The user will now have two tabs open and can toggle between the tables and the maps. A time slider under the map allows the user to select the program year for which data are displayed. The default view for the maps is the current program year.
On the nationwide map, the user can see summary information about the number of authorized positions, enrollments, and variance in a state by moving the cursor over a state. The information is displayed in a pop-up probe box.
A single click on a state will drill down to the state map showing each county in the state. Another click will let the user drill down to a particular county. The counties are color-coded to show which national grantees have authorized positions in each county. Moving the cursor over the county will display the probe box with the summary information about the number of authorized positions, enrollments, and variance in the county; it will also highlight in the legend to the right of the map the name of the national grantee or set-aside grantee that has authorized positions in that county. A square within the county boundaries indicates that the state grantee has authorized positions in the county; the size of the square indicates the relative number of state grantee authorized positions.
The legend for the color coding also indicates counties that have no authorized positions at all, counties that have only state authorized positions, and counties in which multiple national grantees or set-aside grantees have authorized positions. Note that NAPCA, which is both a national grantee and a set-aside grantee, does not have its own color in the legend or the map because all of its authorized positions occur in counties with multiple national grantees or set-aside grantees.
The navigation tool in the upper left corner of the map page allows the user to zoom in or zoom out using the slider bar. The compass rose at the top of the slider bar allows the user to move the view north, south, east, or west. Clicking on the icon in the center of the compass rose will bring the user up a level: from the county view to the state view, or from the state view to the nationwide view.
Download All States Data. The fourth tab on the menu bar at the top of the page provides access to an export function that allows the user to download all of the data for all states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. The content and format of this download of all data are the same as the content and format for the download of individual state data that can be accessed from the Tables page. Once the data are downloaded, a national grantee or set-aside grantee can sort the data to isolate those states and counties in which the grantee operates.
