Each year the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) collects a wealth of data on the condition of American education. Unlock this treasure trove of federal education data with DataLab, a powerful suite of interactive data tools (PowerStats, QuickStats, and TrendStats). Choose from 50 datasets to answer questions like how often does cyberbullying occur, how much do teachers get paid across the nation, are students prepared for college? Come and learn how to use these tools yourself!
