Connecticut Public School Enrollment Projections, 1980.
Connecticut State Dept. of Education, Hartford. Bureau of Research, Planning, and Evaluation.; Connecticut State Board of Education, Hartford.
Enrollment projections for the state of Connecticut are carried out to the year 2000 in this document. Separate figures are provided for the elementary and secondary levels because their trends will be different in the 1980s. Vocational-technical school enrollment is incorporated into the secondary enrollment figures. The data should be useful to districts in planning for staffing, facilities, programs, and budgets. The report furnishes an historical background on enrollment trends in the state and discusses the factors affecting enrollment, including the birth rate, infant and child mortality, migration of school-age children, private school enrollment, and secondary school attrition. The enrollment projections were based on the cohort survival method, which assumes that recent enrollment history offers sufficient information to predict future enrollment. Enrollments between October 1974 and 1979 served as the data base. The report also evaluates prior projections. Appended are enrollment figures from 1960 through 1980, actual and projected births for Connecticut residents from 1960 to 1995, and statistics on women of child-bearing age and fertility rates for 1970-1995 and 1970-1985, respectively.
