Projections of Education Statistics to 2002. Pocket Projections.
Hussar, William J.
Each year the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) publishes this pocket summary of the "Projections of Education Statistics." The tables give a sampling of what is expected to happen over the next 10 years in the following areas: (1) population by age group; (2) elementary school and secondary school enrollment; (3) high school graduates; (4) numbers of classroom teachers; (5) student/teacher ratios; (6) expenditures; (7) higher education enrollment; and (8) earned degrees. Using institutional data from the NCES and demographic data and projections from the Bureau of the Census, total enrollment is projected using expected enrollment rates. Exponential smoothing and multiple linear regression are the two major techniques used to project these rates. The complete book,"Projections of Education Statistics to 2002," contains similar projections plus state-level tables on public elementary school and secondary school enrollment and high school graduates as well as other supplementary information.
