This report presents detailed tabulations of data on school enrollment of the civilian noninstitutional population in October 1993. It also includes a summary time series of data collected since the beginning of the survey in 1946. Data cover enrollment in "regular school" from nursery school through college and professional schools. Data are shown by the following characteristics: (1) age; (2) sex; (3) race; (4) Hispanic origin; (5) marital status; (6) family status; (7) family income; (8) education of the householder; (9) labor force status; (10) metropolitan residence; (11) region; and (12) mother's labor force status and education (for preprimary enrollment). Also shown are level and grade of school, public or private schools, full or part-time attendance, and two-year or four-year college. Vocational school enrollment is shown separately. In October 1993 about 65.4 million persons were enrolled in regular school, comparable to the number enrolled in 1992 but over 6 million more than were enrolled a decade earlier. Elementary school enrollment was around 31 million, with high school enrollment at 13.7 million, and a similar number enrolled in college. Included is a U.S. Department of Commerce News press release that discusses changes in school enrollment levels of the nation's race and Hispanic origin groups. Four figures and eight text tables present population characteristics. Nineteen detailed tables and 15 tables in an appendix present additional information. (SLD)
