United States Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools, 2000-2001: The Annual Statistical Report on Schools, Enrollment and Staffing.
This document is a statistical report on Catholic elementary and secondary schools in the United States. The first part of this report presents data concerning an overview of the historical dimensions of Catholic education and the context of American education in which private schools operate. The second part includes Catholic school enrollment and staffing demographic data that highlight school, student, and staffing characteristics, and special services provided to students in Catholic schools. The report is based on census data gathered by each of the 176 arch/diocesan offices of education in the United States and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Although there was a diocesan response rate of 100 percent, the data do not include responses to all the items by all the dioceses or by all the schools within each diocese. Appendices give summary statistical reports on number of schools and enrollment (sorted by region; sorted by region, state, and diocese); archdiocese/dioceses ranked by number of students; states ranked by number of students; number of full-time-equivalent staff, sorted by region; number of schools per location, sorted by region; and government funded programs, sorted by region, state, and diocese.
