Preprimary Enrollment 1980.
This report presents data, obtained from the 50 states and Washington, D.C., on the October 1980 enrollments of 3- to 5-year-old children in nursery schools and kindergartens, excluding day care centers. The data were derived from special tabulations prepared for the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) from the October 1980 Current Population Survey conducted by the United States Bureau of the Census. Enrollment rates are examined in terms of geographical region, family income, occupation and education of the head of the household, education and labor status of the children's mothers, trends in preprimary enrollments from October 1970 to October 1980, and enrollment characteristics of black children and children of Spanish origin. Definitions and explanations of terms mentioned throughout the report are provided in Appendix A, and information regarding the source and the reliability of the data are discussed in Appendix B.
