Educational Planning: The Census Bureau Can Help.
Whitson, Dorothy W.
The author states that projection of future populations is not feasible because the chief factor in the computations, the birth rate, cannot be predicted with certainty. The paper discusses some national implications, and also suggests that census data by school district can be useful in improving formulas for distribution of federal and State educational funds; providing a base for local school superintendents for planning and policymaking; supporting State educational agency policy planning; relating measures of the ability to finance education to expenditure patterns from other data sources;and providing data for many basic administrative tasks.
