Education in States and Nations: Indicators Comparing U.S. States with Other Industrialized Countries in 1991. Second Edition.
Phelps, Richard P.; And Others
Indicators in this volume provide international benchmarks for assessing the condition of education in U.S. states and in the United States as a whole by comparison with many other industrialized countries for which data are available. On six sets of indicators (37 indicators in all), country-level and state-level measures are arrayed side-by-side to facilitate comparison. The indicators are grouped into six categories: (1) background; (2) participation; (3) processes and institutions; (4) achievement and attainment; (5) labor market outcomes; and (6) finance. The presentation of each indicator includes an explanation of what it measures, why it is important, and key results from a comparison of countries and states. Throughout the report, comparisons are most often made in the text among like-sized entities. The presentation of each indicator also includes separate tables for states and countries and graphs that display states and countries together. Supplemental notes and a statistical appendix include supplemental and technical information on how measures in the indicators were calculated, and a glossary is included. (Contains 37 two-part tables and 37 figures, some of which have several parts.) (SLD)
