High School Graduates: Projections for the Fifty States (1982-2000).
McConnell, William R.; Kaufman, Norman
Projections of high school graduates for each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia from 1982 to 2000 are presented to update projections made in 1979. The projections for 22 states are based on the combined numbers of graduates of public and nonpublic schools. The projections for the remaining 28 states and the District of Columbia are for public high school graduates only. There were notable similarities among most of the states in some regions and notable contrasts among the various regions. For four regions of the United States, information is provided on the pattern of projected high school graduates during 1981-2000 in terms of the percentage change from 1981. The states that comprise the following four regions are identified: northeast region, northcentral region, southeast-southcentral region, and western region. The following data for each state are also presented: the actual, annual number of graduates for 1975-1976 through 1981-1982, and projections for 1982-1983 through 1999-2000. A designation under each state indicates whether the projections are for public high school graduates only or for graduates of public and nonpublic schools combined. A narrative summary of the findings is included, along with information on the study methodology. (SW)
