This report contains detailed data on years of schooling completed by the U.S. population in 1975. Statistical tables show data on years of schooling completed by age, sex, race, Spanish origin, type of residence, and occupation. The proportion of each age group graduating from high school has risen substantially in the last 24 years. At the same time, the proportion of high school graduates entering college has also risen. These higher numbers of college entrants combined with the increase in population size have produced larger numbers of college graduates during the past 25 years. Some of the consequences of the shifting level of schooling in the United States during the past 25 years are outlined in the report. An appendix contains definitions and explanations. (Author/RM)
