School Enrollment in the United States: 2008

Jessica W. Davis, Kurt Bauman

This report discusses school enrollment levels and trends in the population aged 3 and older based on data collected in 2008 by the U.S. Census Bureau in the American Community Survey (ACS) and the Current Population Survey (CPS). This is the second report in a series of reports using both ACS and CPS data to discuss school enrollment. The two surveys are used in this report because of their complimentary strengths in providing data on enrollment. The ACS is a valuable source of school enrollment data because of its large sample size and ability to provide statistics for small levels of geography. The CPS data offer a detailed selection of questions on school enrollment, allowing for unique analysis.
