|Figure 3. Actual and projected numbers for enrollment in public elementary and secondary schools, by race/ethnicity: Fall 1994 through fall 2019|
NOTE: The historical racial/ethnic time-series were constructed using racial/ethnic enrollment data at
the state level for individual grades. In some instances, enrollment data by race/ethnicity had to be
imputed. Further, in some instances, the racial/ethnic enrollment data for individual grades had to be
adjusted to the state total for that grade. For additional information see the Elementary and Secondary
Enrollment section of appendix A. Race categories exclude persons of Hispanic ethnicity. Mean
absolute percentage errors of selected education statistics can be found in table A-2, appendix A.
