2019 “Condition of Education”

This annual report highlights through uses of massive amounts of data the state of the education sector from pre-k through college. Two very important “spotlights” are included in this year’s version: Young Adult Educational and Employment Outcomes by Family Socioeconomic Status and Postsecondary Outcomes for Nontraditional Undergraduate Students. In light of recent reports of parents scheming to get their children into elite colleges, the first report makes it clear that parental socioeconomic factors do play a significant role in college attendance/completion. The second report, the first time it has been issued, traces the educational path taken by “nontraditional” students; it includes data on completion, transfer, and enrollment rates.

Another relevant report is The Postsecondary Undergraduate Population: Student Income and Demographics from CRS.
