Notes:

Issue Briefs present information on education topics of current interest. All estimates shown are based on samples and are subject to sampling variability. All differences are statistically significant at the 0.05 percent level. In the design, conduct, and data processing of NCES surveys, efforts are made to minimize the effects of nonsampling errors, such as item nonresponse, measurement error, data processing error, or other systematic error.

The data reported in this Issue Brief have been combined from 3 separate independent surveys-1994, 1995, and 1996. There is a potential for a small amount of bias associated with the absence of schools built between the administration of each of the three surveys and 1998.
