The District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and all states except Hawaii submitted data on program participation by ethnic group, migrant status, gender, and year of birth; on participation patterns by grade and service area for regular and summer terms; and on staffing for regular and summer terms. Of the 343,269 total participants: (1) 75% were Hispanic and 12% were white; (2) 53% were formerly migrant, 30% were currently interstate migrant, and 17% were currently intrastate migrant; (3) 52% were male and 48% were female; and (4) 12% were born 1981-87, 49% were born 1975-80, 36% were born 1969-74, and 3% were born 1964-68. Participants totaled 300,674 in the regular term and 104,751 in the summer term, down 7% from 1985-86 in each case. The most frequent category of service provided was attendance and guidance services (71% of regular term participants, 79% of summer term participants), followed by reading (44% regular term, 66% summer term), and mathematics (32% regular term, 65% summer term). The Migrant Education Program funded 10,770 full-time equivalent staff in the regular term and 10,427 in the summer term. About 75% of total staff in both terms were teachers and teacher aides.
