Characteristics of Households with Children Enrolled in Elementary and Secondary Schools.
National Center for Education Statistics (ED), Washington, DC.
Data obtained from the 1982 Current Population Survey conducted by the United States Bureau of the Census permit a series of comparisons between households with children enrolled in public schools and those with children enrolled in private schools. The estimates included in this report are based on data from a sample of approximately 60,000 occupied households in 629 areas of the country. These areas include 1,148 counties, independent cities, and minor civil divisions. Charts and tables specify (1) the number and percent of households with children 3 to 20 years old enrolled in grades 1 through 12 by selected demographic characteristics; and (2) percent of households having children enrolled in grades 1 through 12 by type of school and, serially, by children enrolled per household, family income, type of worker, educational attainment level, race/ethnicity, and marital status. The report also provides definitions of terms, a list of states in the four geographical regions of the United States, a discussion of the source and reliability of estimates, and tables noting standard errors of measurement.
