This year’s report includes 50 indicators on topics ranging from prekindergarten through postsecondary education, as well as labor force outcomes and international comparisons. The report includes an At a Glance section, which allows readers to quickly make comparisons within and across indicators, and a Highlights section, which captures a key finding or set of findings from each indicator. It also contains a Reader’s Guide, a Glossary, and a Guide to Data Sources that provide additional information to help place the indicators in context.
