Common Core of Data: Public Education Agency Universe, 1994-1995 (ICPSR 6920)
Principal Investigator(s): United States Department of Education. National Center for Education Statistics
This dataset contains records for each public elementary and secondary education agency in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, United States territories (American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and the Marshall Islands), and Department of Defense schools outside of the United States for 1994-1995. Data were reported to the Bureau of the Census for the National Center for Education Statistics by the state coordinators. Each record provides state and federal identification numbers, agency name, address, and telephone number, county name and FIPS code, agency type code, student counts, graduates and other completers counts, and other codes for selected characteristics of the agency. In addition, grade span, number of schools operated by the agency, and number of classroom teachers were aggregated.
