Digest of Education Statistics, 2008
The “Digest of Education Statistics, 2008,” from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), is the 44th in a series of publications initiated in 1962. Its primary purpose is to provide a compilation of statistical information covering the broad field of American education — from pre-kindergarten through graduate school — drawn from government and private sources, but especially from surveys and other activities led by NCES. The digest contains data on the number of schools, students, and teachers, as well as statistics on educational attainment, finances, libraries, technology, and international comparisons (see also below). Details on population trends, education attitudes, labor force characteristics, and federal aid supplies helpful background for evaluating the education data.
