Projections of Education Statistics to 2005. Pocket Projections.
Hussar, William J.
Every year the National Center for Education Statistics publishes this pocket summary of projections of education statistics. These brief tables give a sampling of what is expected over the next decade, summarizing the complete book, "Projections of Education Statistics to 2005." It is expected that the population of persons aged 5 to 13 years will increase by 2005 by about 11%. The total enrollment in elementary and secondary education is expected to grow by about 14% from the 1993-94 figure of 48,824,000, with the greatest increases coming during the high school years. The projected high school enrollment by the year 2005, 15,985,000, is about 21% above that of 1993-94. High school graduates are expected to rise proportionately, as are the numbers of teachers. Expenditures for elementary and secondary education are expected to increase at an even greater rate, with the projected figure for 2005 anticipated to be 33% above that of 1993-94. Enrollment in higher education is expected to increase by 8% by 2005. While a slight increase is anticipated in the numbers of women receiving advanced degrees, the absolute numbers of men earning master's and doctor's degrees are expected to decline. Technical notes explain the projection methodology. (SLD)
