About this database

The primary federal entity for collecting and analyzing data related to education in the U.S. and other nations. Provides educational data covering assessment, early childhood, elementary/secondary, international, library, and postsecondary education.

NCES issues numerous publications and datasets each year. These include: early releases, issue briefs, statistical reports, directories, and handbooks of standard terminology. Many publications report the findings of specific surveys, but at least three--Digest of Education Statistics, Projections of Education Statistics, and The Condition of Education--cover the field of education statistics from a broad perspective.
