"The Condition of Education" is a congressionally mandated report that provides an annual portrait of education in the United States. This document includes information from "The Condition of Education 2009" for data enrollment trends by age. Changes in enrollment patterns may reflect changes in attendance requirements, the perceived value or cost of education, as well as the time taken to complete degrees. Between 1970 and 2007, children ages 3-4 saw the largest increase in enrollment rates. There was also growth in enrollment rates for those ages 18-19 and 20-24, the periods when individuals are typically enrolled in postsecondary education. Overall the "Condition of Education" reports focus on participation and persistence in education, student performance and other measures of achievement, as well as the environment for learning and resources for education. The 2009 report includes 46 indicators. (Contains 2 figures and 4 tables.) [Information and corresponding tables are taken directly from "The Condition of Education 2009" therefore the pagination may not be sequential. For full report "The Condition of Education 2009," see ED505415. For "The Condition of Education 2009 in Brief," see ED505416.]
