Comparative nursery, elementary, and secondary school and college level enrollment statistics for male, female, white, black, and Hispanic students are presented in this paper. Enrollment trend highlights indicate that: (1) the decline in total school enrollment from 1977 to 1978 reflects declines in enrollment at all levels from kindergarten to college; (2) nursery school enrollment increased between 1977 and 1978; (3) in 1978, a greater proportion of college students were women and more blacks attended college than in the past; and (4) a larger proportion of college students were attending college part time in 1978 than in 1977, and the proportion of college students who were 35 years old or over was significantly greater in 1978 than 1972. An appendix discusses the source and reliability of the data presented. (EB)
