Bruno, Rosalind R.
This document presents an analysis of data from the October 1979 Current Population Survey (CPS) on private school enrollment and the levels of tuition paid by families of private school students at the preschool, elementary, and secondary levels. The data are presented in 24 charts and tables and the major trends and patterns are discussed in accompanying text. The information presented is analyzed according to school characteristics (type of agency sponsoring the school, level of school, and location of school) and student characteristics (race, family income, tuition paid, location of residence, family education level, and number of family members enrolled). Some enrollment data from the CPS for the years 1948-78 are included to show trends in private school enrollment over three decades. (Author/PGD)
