Projections of Education Statistics to 1992-93. Methodological Report with Detailed Projection Tables.
Gerald, Debra E.
This document describes the techniques and assumptions used by the National Center for Education Statistics to prepare the statistical projections used in the center's reports, and it presents many of the resulting projections in tabular form. The report covers projections in key areas of educational statistics, including enrollments, high school graduates, earned degrees, and characteristics of instructional staffs in elementary, secondary, and higher education. The report covers this material in three basic sections. The first section, composed of five chapters, describes the statistical universe for each series of projections, the basic asumptions underlying each projected series, methods used to make estimates for missing data in past time series, data used in making projections, and information on the accuracy of past projections. The second section, Appendix A, contains tables of demographic time series data used to produce the projections. The third section, Appendix B, presents detailed projections of enrollments, high school graduates, earned degrees, and instructional staffs. The table of contents lists each of the chapters and the 66 tables, some of which consist of clusters of sub-tables. A glossary defining the terms used to identify types of degrees, enrollment conditions, instructional staff status, and schools is presented as Appendix C. (PGD)
