Projections of Education Statistics to 1990-91. Volume II: Methodological Report.
Frankel, Martin M.; Gerald, Debra E.
This methodological report describes in five chapters the techniques and assumptions that underlie and greatly influence the projections shown in the first volume of "Projections of Education Statistics to 1990-91." Chapter 1 describes the general methodology and assumptions used to produce the projections in Volume I. Chapters 2 through 5 provide specific information on the methodology and assumptions used to produce the projections for each corresponding chapter of Volume I. Each of these chapters contains the following information: (1) a description of the basic methodology; (2) tables of projection equations and related statistics; (3) tables of percentages and rates used to make projections; (4) a table of basic assumptions underlying the projections; and (5) a table describing the methods used to estimate missing data items. The report's appendix contains tables of economic and demographic time-series data that were also used to produce the projections in Volume I. (Author/MLF)
