I. Abstract

    The Census Bureau plans to request clearance from the Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) for the collection of data concerning the

    This survey provides information on public/private elementary 
school, secondary school, and college enrollment, and on 
characteristics of private school students and their families, which is 
used for tracking historical trends, policy planning, and support.
    This survey is the only source of national data on the age 
distribution and family characteristics of college students and the 
only source of demographic data on preprimary school enrollment. As 
part of the federal government's efforts to collect data and provide 
timely information to local governments for policymaking decisions, the 
survey provides national trends in enrollment and progress in school.
