Projections of Education Statistics to 2003. Pocket Projections.
Hussar, William J.
Each year the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) publishes a pocket summary of their "Projections of Education Statistics." This summary reviews data on U.S. education from 1980-81 and provides predictions of educational data until 2002-03. Included are tables summarizing population trends and tables of elementary school and secondary school enrollment, graduates, classroom teachers, pupil/teacher ratios, and expenditures. For higher education, enrollment, earned degrees, and expenditures are summarized. Forecasts are made using data from the NCES and the Bureau of the Census. General projection methodology is briefly considered. Exponential smoothing and linear regression are the two major projection techniques used. (SLD)
