This report discusses the program and plans of the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) for 1979-80. The publication provides an overview of the major program activities for fiscal year 1979 and plans for 1980. The center provides data to monitor trends in education and address key policy issues. These data are supplemented by special studies mandated by Congress or developed in response to a specific need. The NCES program is divided into two major activities. The education statistics program develops and maintains a core of education statistics on both institutions and individuals for monitoring trends in elementary secondary and postsecondary education and for providing information to address policy issues. The statistical services program develops and maintains a comprehensive program of services to maximize accessibility and usefulness of NCES education statistics. (Author/JM)
