National Center for Education Statistics
This publication contains a sample of the 59 indicators in "The Condition of Education 2001." Since 1870, the federal government has gathered data about students, teachers, schools, and education funding. As mandated by Congress, the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) annually publishes a statistical report on the status and progress of education in the United States. "The Condition of Education" includes data and analysis on a wide variety of issues. The indicators in the 2001 edition are in six sections: (1) Participation in Education; (2) Learner Outcomes; (3) Student Effort and Academic Progress; (4) Quality of Elementary and Secondary School Environments; (5) The Context of Postsecondary Education; and (6) Societal Support for Learning. The indicators in "The Condition of Education" use data from government and private sources. [For the full report "The Condition of Education 2001. NCES 2001-072," see ED546120.]
