The Digest of Education Statistics, compiled by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), U.S. Dept. of Education, summarizes information about American education from prekindergarten through graduate school. Data is selected from many government and private sources, including NCES's own survey results, and must be current and nationwide in scope. Topics include the number of schools and colleges, teachers, enrollments, and graduates, educational attainment, finances, federal funds for education, libraries, and international education. Evaluative context is provided in supplemental information on population trends, attitudes on education, education characteristics of the labor force, government finances, and economic trends.
