Digest of Educational Statistics, 1969 Edition.
Simon, Kenneth A.; Grant, W. Vance
The 1969 edition of the Digest of Educational Statistics is the eighth in this series of annual publications. The primary purpose of this compendium of tables is to provide an abstract of statistical information covering the broad field of American education from kindergarten through the graduate school. Subjects on which statistics are given include the number of schools and colleges, school enrollments, teachers, graduates, educational attainment, finances, Federal funds for education, libraries, international education, and research and development. The Digest is divided into five chapters: (1) All levels of education, (2) elementary and secondary education, (3) higher education, (4) Federal programs for education, and (5) selected statistics related to education in the U.S. Improvements and additions over previous volumes in this series include selected statistics on local public school systems; expanded coverage of the field of vocational education; results of public school bond elections; trend data on degrees conferred in dentistry, medicine, and law; and a listing of the institutions of higher education that enroll the largest number of students and those that confer the most doctor's degrees.
