National Center for Education Statistics (ED), Washington, DC.
This report presents key data analyses that measure the health of education, monitor important developments in the education system, and show trends in major aspects of education. It is an annual, Congressionally mandated report produced by the National Center for Education Statistics. The data were compiled from many sources, including federal and state agencies, private research organizations, and professional associations. The information is intended to be policy-relevant and problem-oriented, having been produced for persons who wish to examine in greater detail the issues presented in the publication "The Condition of Education." It contains approximately 180 tables that provide additional information to complement the data presented in "The Condition." The data are divided into two parts. Section 1, the largest section, contains all the supplemental tables, along with explanatory notes. The tables provide information on numerous scenarios, such as the percentage of 3-, 4-, and 5-year-olds enrolled in center-based programs or kindergarten; the percentage of students ages 6-20 who were enrolled in grades 1-12 and who attended summer schools; event dropout rates for those in grades 10-12; and the percentage of postsecondary instructional faculty and staff and average number of classes taught, selected faculty characteristics, and employment status. Section 2 contains data on standard error for each of the tables in section 1. (RJM)
