National Center for Education Statistics
Since 1870, the federal government has gathered data about students, teachers, schools, and education funding. As mandated by Congress, the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) in the Institute of Education Sciences annually publishes a statistical report on the status and progress of education in the United States. "The Condition of Education" includes data and analysis on a wide variety of issues. These data are taken from government and private sources. The 2011 edition of "The Condition" contains indicators that are divided into five sections: (1) Participation in Education; (2) Learner Outcomes; (3) Student Effort and Educational Progress; (4) Contexts of Elementary and Secondary Education; and (5) Contexts of Postsecondary Education. The publication also contains additional tables and notes related to each indicator. (Contains 11 figures and 1 table.) [For the full report, "The Condition of Education 2011. NCES 2011-033," see ED520001.]
