The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) is the primary federal entity for collecting, analyzing, and reporting data related to education. The second of a series of indices to NCES "Issue Briefs" and "Indicators of the Month" is presented here. "Issue Briefs" are short-format publications that present information on education topics of current interest. "Indicators of the Month" analyze key data that measure the health of education, monitor important developments, and show trends in major aspects of education. The index includes all "Issue Briefs" and "Indicators of the Month" currently available from the first edition in 1992 to the most recent edition of June 1998. Topics covered include race/ethnicity; teachers, administrators, and teaching issues; schools and schooling; school finance; student characteristics, course taking, and aspirations; educational outcomes; and international assessments. The titles, issues dates, and reference numbers of 76 briefs are listed here. The NCES addresses high-priority education data needs, provides indicators of education status and trends, and reports data to the Department of Education, to Congress, to the States, and to education policy makers and the general public.
