Information from 171 diocesan offices across the United States was drawn together to prepare this statistical report on enrollments and revenues in Catholic elementary schools. The report, one of the annual statistical reports on Catholic education developed using the National Catholic Educational Association's national database, also provides contextual statistics on public and private school enrollment. Seven tables are presented, covering (1) public and private elementary enrollment from 1970 to 1992; (2) private elementary enrollment (by affiliation) for 1965-66 and 1978-79; (3) Catholic elementary enrollment and staffing trends from 1976 to 1986; (4) elementary school revenues for 1985 and 1986; (5) elementary school revenues by percentages from 1985 to 1986; (6) per pupil revenues from 1973 to 1986; and (7) tuition and basic fees for 1981-82, 1985-86, and 1986-87. The report analyzes trends in enrollment, pupil-teacher ratios, operating revenues, per pupil costs, school sizes, minority enrollment, and other factors, providing some breakdowns by region. A list of 16 highlights of the statistical findings is provided in the beginning of the report. (PGD)
