The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) has a mandate to report to Congress on the condition of education by June 1 of each year. The Condition of Education 2016 summarizes important developments and trends in education using the latest available data. The 2016 report presents 43 key indicators grouped under four main areas: (1) population characteristics, (2) participation in education, (3) elementary and secondary education, and (4) postsecondary education. Included in the report are three Spotlight indicators that provide a more in-depth look at some data.
The report can be accessed at http://nces.ed.gov/pubs2016/2016144.pdf.
