In 6 chapters, 173 tables, and 12 figures, this document provides large amounts of statistical data on most aspects of United States education, both public and private. The chapters cover (1) all levels of education, (2) elementary and secondary education, (3) college and university education, (4) adult and vocational education, (5) federal programs for education and related activities, and (6) special studies and statistics related to education. Information is contained on a variety of subjects including the number of schools and colleges, teachers, enrollments, graduates, educational attainment, finances, federal funds for education, employment and income of graduates, libraries, and international education. Among the data appearing for the first time in the document are the following: the state figures on the transportation of public school pupils; enrollment in public schools by grade span; a distribution of public schools by size of enrollment; schools, enrollment, staff, and finances in 120 of the largest school systems; trends in graduate enrollment in institutions of higher education; courses taken by participants in adult education; and data on the use of computers in public schools. A short introduction points out major findings, while each chapter has brief overviews of significant trends. An index is included. (MLF)
