Summary

Data on 1982-1983 state support for elementary/secondary and higher education are presented. The objective is to provide policymakers information on how funding decisions vary and to promote self-analysis of how well each state is doing. Data and narrative analysis of regional trends cover: demographic characteristics, state support for elementary/secondary and higher education, and state general expenditure levels. Four basic demographic characteristics important to understanding and planning for state educational support are addressed: population, income, enrollment, and state expenditures. Separate tables for elementary/secondary education and for higher education include the following subcategories: state support in millions, the percentage change from 1977-1978 to 1982-1983, state support as percent of state expenditures, support per pupil, support per capita, and support per $1,000 personal income. Finally, the relationships between state support for elementary/secondary education and state support for higher education is examined, and the states are classified in terms of whether support for one level of education is being provided at the expense of support for the other level. Numerous graphs and maps are included, along with an insert (24 by 36 inches) of highlights from the text. (SW)
