History:

The territory that would become Clark was originally a part of several of the early villages of the State and of Union County, but it was in 1858 after the village of Rahway incorporated itself into a city, that present-day Clark officially became a community. The City of Rahway designated this land as the 5th Ward of Rahway. Clark was incorporated as a township on March 23, 1864, from portions of Rahway. The Township was named for Abraham Clark, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. Portions of the township were taken to form Cranford and Winfield Townships.

Factors used in creating the index are income, educational achievement, and occupation of persons within the selected ZIP code. Since this index is based on the population of an entire Zip code, it may not reflect the nature of an individual school.
