106 p. 

This report on the private school universe presents data on schools with grades K-12 by school size, school level, religious orientation, geographical region, community type, and program emphasis. The numbers of students and teachers are reported in the same categories. The number of students is also reported by race/ethnicity, gender, and grade level. Three figures and twenty-two tables present data by private-school typology, religious orientation, and association membership. Each of the primary divisions (Catholic, other religious, and nonsectarian) is subdivided into three additional categories: "Catholic" into parochial, diocesan, and private order; "other religious" into conservative Christian, affiliated with a national denomination or other religious school association, and unaffiliated; and "nonsectarian" into regular program, special emphasis, and special education. The survey design is described in the Technical Notes section. Selected results show that the South had the most private schools, private school students, and teachers, and the West the fewest of all three. Appendix A contains standard-error tables; Appendix B, values and standard-error tables for Kindergarten-terminal schools; Appendix C, item response-rate tables; and Appendix D, the Private School Survey Questionnaire, 1999-2000.
