The National Center for Education Statistics's (NCES) quarterly publication offers a useful overview of all NCES products released each quarter (see our original review in the April 23, 1999 Scout Report
). Organized by selected topic, short publications (under fifteen pages) are offered in their entirety, while summaries are provided for longer publications. Short descriptions of other NCES products and notices of training and funding opportunities are also included. Featured topics from the most recent issue include projections of education statistics, methodology, and elementary and secondary education.
