2 Key Education Sources You Should Have

The U.S. National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) has just issued its two leading annual publications, the Digest of Education Statistics and the Condition of Education.

Both publications cover all levels of education, from preschool to postsecondary, and include a wealth of data and analyses on the educational attainment and skills of the U.S. workforce. The respective Web sites for the two reports allow the user to download either the entire report, or to browse it section by section. In some cases these reports include data and analyses available nowhere else. Both reports include national and state-specific data; international comparisons; and data on specific age groups, races and ethnic groups, gender, persons with disabilities, and English as a second language.

The Digest of Education Statistics, now nearly a thousand pages, includes sections on educational attainment trends spanning more than a century; high school dropouts; test score trends; coursetaking, grades, and homework; postsecondary enrollment; postsecondary degrees, by field of study; labor force status, occupation and earnings by educational attainment; and many other topics.

The Condition of Education, now more than 300 pages, has sections on employment, unemployment and earnings by educational attainment; school enrollment by age; U.S. and international test scores; the transition from secondary to postsecondary education; postsecondary educational attainment by socioeconomic status; disparities in educational outcomes among male youth; and many other topics.
