Six tables present data on nationwide school enrollment among various socioeconomic and demographic groups in 1981 and earlier years. From 1980 to 1981, total school enrollment continued the downward trend that began 6 years earlier, as the number of elementary school students declined and the number of high school students leveled off and then declined. Three tables give data on 1965-81 enrollment among persons aged 3 to 34, broken down by educational level, race, Spanish origin, age, sex, and public or private control of the school. The remaining tables cover college enrollment from 1965-81 by sex, race, and Spanish origin; from 1972-81 by age and sex; and from 1970-81 by type of college, attendance status, age, and sex. (MLF)
