In this report, information is provided about the Educational Services sector (sector 61), which comprises establishments that provide instruction and training in a wide variety of subjects. This instruction and training is provided by specialized establishments, such as schools, colleges, universities, and training centers. These establishments may be privately owned and operated for profit or not for profit, or they may be publicly owned and operated. They may also offer food and accommodation services to their students. Educational services are usually delivered by teachers or instructors that explain, tell, demonstrate, supervise, and direct learning. Instruction is imparted in diverse settings, such as educational institutions, the workplace, or the home through correspondence, television, or other means. It can be adapted to the particular needs of the students, for example sign language can replace verbal language for teaching students with hearing impairments. All industries in the sector share this commonality of process, namely, labor inputs of instructors with the requisite subject matter expertise and teaching ability. Data for this sector are shown for establishments of firms subject to federal income tax, and separately, of firms that are exempt from federal income tax under provisions of the Internal Revenue Code. Many of the "kinds of business" included in this sector are not thought of as commercial businesses and the terms (such as "business," "establishment," and "firm") used to describe them may not be descriptive of such services. However, these terms are applied to all "kinds of business" in order to maintain conformity in the measures of the production and delivery of goods and services and in the presentation of data. Reports providing statistics on this sector include the following: Industry Series; Geographic Area Series; Subject Series, such as Product Lines, Establishment and Firm Size (Including Legal Form of Organization), and Miscellaneous Subjects; ZIP Code Statistics; and Other Reports. Appended are: (1) Explanation of Terms; (2) NAICS Codes, Titles, and Descriptions; and (3) Methodology.
