Actual and projected numbers for elementary and secondary teachers, by control of school: Fall 1995 through fall 2020
NOTE: 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. The private school teacher number for 2009 is an actual number from the 2009–10 PSS. Teachers reported in full-time equivalents. 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.
