Baker, Bruce D.; Richards, Craig E.
Economics of Education Review, v18 n4 p405-15 Oct 1999
Applies neural network methods for forecasting 1991-95 per-pupil expenditures in U.S. public elementary and secondary schools. Forecasting models included the National Center for Education Statistics' multivariate regression model and three neural architectures. Regarding prediction accuracy, neural network results were comparable or superior to the NCES model. (20 references) (MLH)
