|Figure 1. Actual and projected numbers for enrollment in elementary and secondary schools, by grade level: Fall 1994 through fall 2019|
NOTE: PK = prekindergarten. Enrollment numbers for prekindergarten through 12th grade and
prekindergarten through 8th grade include private nursery and prekindergarten enrollment in schools
that offer kindergarten or higher grades. Since the biennial Private School Universe Survey (PSS) is
collected in the fall of odd numbered years, private school numbers for alternate years are estimated
based on data from the PSS. Some data have been revised from previously published figures. Mean
absolute percentage errors of selected education statistics can be found in table A-2, appendix A.
