Waite, Linda J.
This report contains data on the years of schooling completed by persons who were 14 years old and over in March 1974. Statistical tables show data on years of schooling completed by sex, age, and race; for persons of Spanish origin; and for persons of metropolitan and nonmetropolitan residence. The survey results for 1974 are presented in historical perspective and the trends are analyzed. The publication also examines the relationship between occupations and educational attainment, the trends in college attendance, and the relation between age and educational attainment. Tables may reproduce poorly. (Author/DN)
