Enrollment Forecasting Procedures. A Vocational Education Planning System for Local School Districts. Volume V.
Post, Arnold R.
The document, one in a series to assist in planning procedures for local and State vocational agencies, describes two computer programs, COMENR and VOCEDENR, to be used in secondary enrollment forecasts. The steps in the procedure are: 1) gather data on past public enrollment, new housing trends, census data, and current vocational enrollments and feed them into the computer; 2) the computer yields estimates of public school secondary and vocational enrollment by grade and year; 3) the output is evaluted and an estimate of intersystem transfers and institutional enrollment is added; 4) the new data is fed into the computer; and 5) the computer reforecasts and projects enrollment five years into the future. The manual covers the administrative procedures for collecting and processing the data. The program COMENR is for community enrollment forecasting. The program VOCEDENR is for vocational education enrollment forecasting. (AG)
