The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) is the primary federal entity for collecting and analyzing data related to education in the U.S. and other nations. NCES issues numerous publications and datasets each year. These include: early releases, issue briefs, statistical reports, directories, and handbooks of standard terminology. Many publications report the findings of specific surveys, but at least three—Digest of Education Statistics, Projections of Education Statistics, and The Condition of Education—cover the field of education statistics from a broad perspective. Also includes library statistics.

This statement does not pertain to information at websites other than http://nces.ed.gov, whether funded by or linked to from NCES.
