The 41 tables from the Section of the "Statistical Yearbook" describe the condition of education in New York state in the 1990s and provide information that allows comparisons with early years and with other states. In 1996, the year of latest data, New York's elementary and secondary schools served 3,290,150 students, and 995,885 students were enrolled in the state's institutions of higher education. Tables are grouped into the following categories: (1) fall enrollments in public and nonpublic elementary and secondary schools; (2) public school finances and professional positions; (3) high school graduates, college entrants, and dropout rates; (4) enrollments, degrees granted, and expenditures by institutions of higher education; (5) State University of New York enrollments, degrees granted, and employees; (6) tuition assistance, student loans, scholarships, and awards; (7) educational attainment; (8) libraries, archives, and museums; (9) support for the arts; and (10) public television and broadcasting. Data focus on the 1990s, although in some cases data from earlier decades are included for comparative purposes. (SLD)
