News item published on: 2017-12-18 14:14:29

Finding data and statistical sources for educational research can often be a challenge. Join us for a workshop that will provide an overview of statistics and data resources available from the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).

The NCES is the primary federal entity for collecting and analyzing data related to education in the U.S. and other nations. Learn how to find state, district and local-level data for early childhood through post-secondary education. This workshop will teach you how to find datasets and tables on topics including: dropout rates, race and ethnicity, student/teacher ratio, and college and university enrollment.

This session will be offered on November 1 at 12 p.m. in Cook Library Room 110 and is open to all Southern Miss faculty, staff and students. For more information, contact Michele Frasier-Robinson or 601-266-6168.
