State-level data on an array of topics relevant to public education are provided in this document. Rank-ordered statistics for the 50 states and the District of Columbia cover the following: (1) population (total resident population by age group--5-17, 18 and over, 65 and over; live births, etc.); (2) enrollment and attendance (public, elementary and secondary, daily attendance); (3) faculty (changes in the number of staff as well as their levels of compensation); (4) general financial resources (total personal income, per capita personal income, etc.); (5) governmental revenue (general revenue, own-source revenue and tax collections, etc.); (6) school revenue (funds from federal, state and local sources); (7) government expenditures (spending done by state governments and by state and local governments combined); and (8) school expenditures (including current expenditures per pupil on average daily attendance or average daily membership). All state data are ranked beginning with the largest figure. When the values of two or more states are the same, they are assigned the same rank, with the appropriate number resumed with the next state in rank. The education data in the tables are the most recent actual or estimated data available from state departments of education. Where no data are available from a state education department, an estimate provided by research is identified by an asterisk. The document is preceded by a foreword and technical notes. Appended are state department of education footnotes, a 9-item bibliography, a glossary, and an index to the tables. (MLF)
