Key Statistics for Private Elementary and Secondary Education: School Year 1989-90: Early Estimates. Survey Report.
McMillen, Marilyn Miles
This is the second in a series of early estimates for private elementary and secondary education in the United States reported by the National Center for Education Statistics. These estimates are key statistics reported early in the school year and include the numbers of teachers and students in private elementary and secondary schools and the number of high school graduates. These estimates are based on a national probability sample of private schools surveyed in the fall of 1989. Basic data are collected through the ongoing Schools and Staffing Survey and a Private School Universe data collection system currently under development as an ongoing data system. Early in October 1989, questionnaires were mailed to a national probability sample of 1,169 private elementary and secondary schools from a universe of 27,000 schools. A total of 127 of these schools were subsequently determined to be out of scope. The overall response rate after telephone follow-up was 95% (986 of the 1,042 eligible schools). Comparable estimates for public school teachers, students, and graduates are collected through a survey of state education agencies. These early estimates are preliminary data to be used prior to the release of the 1989-90 final estimates in late 1990. Four data tables are included. (TJH)
