1 Private school numbers are estimated on the basis on past data.
2 Private school numbers are from the Early Estimates survey.
3 Private school numbers are projected.
NOTE: The numbers of elementary and secondary teachers reported separately by the National Education Association were prorated to the NCES totals for each year. Some data have been revised from previously published figures. Projections are based on data through 1998. Because of rounding, details may not add to totals. Mean absolute percentage errors of selected education statistics can be found in table A2.
