NCES Releases the Digest of Education Statistics, 2009

Today, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) released the Digest of Education Statistics, 2009.

From NCES:

The 45th in a series of publications initiated in 1962, the Digest’s primary purpose is to provide a compilation of statistical information covering the broad field of American education from prekindergarten through graduate school. The Digest contains data on a variety of topics, including the number of schools and colleges, teachers, enrollments, and graduates, in addition to educational attainment, finances, and federal funds for education, libraries, and international comparisons.

NCES also released the Mini-Digest of Education Statistics, which is a pocket guide to useful education data.
