Bandeira de Mello, Victor; Young, Beth Aronstamm
This report presents summary data on the general characteristics, fiscal revenues and expenditures, education agency and school numbers and sizes, and students and staff for each state, the District of Columbia, the Department of Defense Dependents Schools, and five outlying areas (American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands). The factors for which data are presented are those most commonly used to present a thumbnail sketch of the resources, needs, organizations, and special characteristics of education within a state. The report is divided into the U. S. profile, rankings of the states, and profiles of the states and outlying areas. Each profile presents five categories of relevant information: (1) general characteristics; (2) agency/school information; (3) student information; (4) staff information; and (5) fiscal information. Data are presented in 627 figures. An appendix contains standard error tables. (SLD)
