Census study on education services
A new report from the U.S. Census Bureau shows that New York and California together account for one quarter of receipts and revenues in educational services.
The nation's educational services industries reported $20.7 billion in receipts and revenues in 1997, the report said. Of that total, California reported $2.9 billion and New York $2.2 billion.
The figures include revenues for both taxable and tax-exempt firms in educational services.
The report noted that the nation's 33,784 taxable educational services establishments employed 251,633 persons and reported receipts of $15.2 billion. Their 7,153 tax-exempt counterparts employed 72,388 workers and generated revenues totaling $5.5 billion.
