How Do We Know? The Educational Path of Our Nation
US Census Bureau
Education plays a fundamental role in American society. This paper takes a look at school enrollment, costs and educational outcomes. How does school enrollment today compare with 1970, when the baby boom generation was in its prime years of school attendance (age 6 to 24) and made up 90 percent of all students enrolled in school? What do people earn with a college degree? How much does one spend on schools? The American Community and other Census Bureau surveys provide information to answer these and other valuable questions. Education statistics are vital to communities in determining funding allocations and guiding program planning.
