In this section, with the exception of tables 65 and 66, data presented for school enrollment and years of school completed for the years 1890 through 1970 are from the decennial censuses; data presented for 1975 are from the Current Population Survey. All data in table 65, and the 1970 data in table 66 are

The month the data were collected varies with the source; census data from the Current Population Survey. were generally collected in April, whereas Current Population Survey information on enrollment was gathered

Therefore, because of different procedures, month of enumeration, in October and on attainment in March. etc., census data are not directly comparable with Current Population Survey data.

For the source of the illiteracy data shown in this section, see the note on table 68.

Regional data for 1890 and all data for 1947 and 1959 include persons of "other" races. 2 Data have been ad justed.

NOTE: In the censuses of 1870 to 1930 two questions--one on the ability to read and one on the ability to write--were asked of the total population 10 years old and over. Illiteracy was defined as the inability to write "regardless of ability to read." Since 1930, the questions were combined and reference has been made as to whether or not the person was able to read and write. The data shown for subsequent years were obtained from the Current Population Survey and refer to the population 14 years old and over. For 1947, the literacy question was asked only of persons who had completed less than 5 years of school. For 1959 and 1969 the literacy question was asked only of persons who had completed less than 6 years of school. Therefore, census data are not strictly comparable with Current Population Survey data.

In this table, data for 1890, 1910, and 1930 are for persons 15 years old and over. Data not available by region after 1930.
