About this Guide
This guide includes both print and online sources of educational statistics. It does not include everything available on educational statistics; but sources which have answered reference questions received from faculty, students and staff in the recent past.
A few explanations about this guide:
- With the exception of the Schools/Districts page, each page includes two listings: Pre-K, Elementary & Secondary Education and Higher Education.
- Many sources cover both Pre-K, Elementary & Secondary Education and Higher Education; therefore, they are listed in both columns.
- To find additional statistics on the United States or to compare the United States with other countries, check the International page.
- Sources unique to California are only listed on the California page. To find additional statistics on California or to compare California with other states, check the States page.
- Sources unique to San Diego are only listed on the San Diego page. To find additional statistics on San Diego or to compare San Diego with other counties, schools, etc., check the Counties/Metropolitan Areas/Regions and the Schools/Districts pages.
