King, Irene A.
This report presents statistical estimates of preprimary enrollment in the United States based on data obtained in October 1974 by the Bureau of the Census in the Current Population Survey. The enrollment in preprimary programs is related to a number of socioeconomic factors: (1) age of child; (2) race; (3) region of the country; (4) controlling sector (public or private); (5) metropolitan status; (6) family income; (7) occupation and education of household head; and (8) full-day or part-day attendance. The introduction offers a summary of the data in relation to the socioeconomic factors investigated. Approximately one-half of the report is made up of tables and figures. Appendices include definitions and explanations for the terms used, information on sampling reliability, and a copy of the questions concerning schcol enrollment from the October 1974 Current Population Survey Form.
