The purpose of this document is to assemble in a single volume the latest available data on current trends and projections of births and enrollments. It is intended to assist school management in decisions relating to facilities planning, staffing, and finance. Demographic statistics on trends and projections regarding enrollments and the number of high school graduates based on current pupils enrolled are presented, followed by an analysis of data on the school-age population, migration of population, the female population in the childbearing years, births and birth rates, control of births, fertility rates among women of childbearing age, and birth expectations among women of childbearing age. The discussion of birth expectations includes data on total fertility rates, lifetime births expected, births to date, and future births expected. A substantial portion of the report consists of state-by-state tables that form the background and framework for planning by local school officials. (Author/MLF)
