Barker, Linda A.
This report is concerned with the enrollment of children 3 to 5 years old in organized educational programs. The data are based upon information collected by the U.S. Bureau of the Census in its October 1971 Current Population Survey. This survey covers a sample of 50,000 households distributed over 449 areas comprising 863 counties and independent cities, with coverage in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The estimating procedure used involves the inflation of weighted sample results to independent estimates of the civilian noninstitutional population of the Unites States by age, sex, and race. (CK)
