ANALYSIS OF MEMBERSHIP AT THE

CLOSE OF EACH MONTH OF SCHOOL

1958-59













RESEARCH REPORT 59-60-3


Prepared by

State Department of Education
Division of Administration and Finance
Research and Statistics Section

Thomas D. Bailey
State Superintendent of Public Instruction

Tallahassee, Florida
1959





























Research Report 59-60-3 is the third of a series
of statistical studies being prepared by the Re-
search and Statistics Section of the Division of
Administration and Finance of the Florida State
Department of Education.

The preparation of these reports is one phase in
the implementation of Florida's plan for improving
statistical services of the State Department of
Education under the provisions of Title X, National
Defense Education Act.








The data on the enclosed tables are taken from Item 18, "Membership at
Close of Each Month of School," Principal's Annual Report on Attendance,
submitted to the State Department of Education for the 1958-59 school
year.

This is the second year that a complete tabulation has been made. A par-
tial analysis was made of 1956-57 data. It is still too soon to use these
data for conclusions as to the established pattern of growth in membership
in Florida Public Schools. However, some patterns are beginning to emerge.
Some of the more significant features of the last three year period are
given.

1956-57 1957-58 1958-59
1. Peak Membership Month
White 6th 5th 6th
Negro 5th 5th 4th

2o Increase-Peak Month over
First Month
White 20,988 17,645 12,295
Negro 5,572 6,362 5,271

3. Per Cent of Increase Peak
Month over First Month
White 3.78% 2.85% 1.84%
Negro 3.46 3.70 2.83

4o Membership change from End of
First Month to End of Last Month
'White 5,985 1,667 2,498
Tlegro 2,052 3,381 1,252

5. Per Cent change from End of
First Month to End of Last Month
White 1.08% .27% .37%
Negro 1,28 1.96 .67

6. Number of Counties showing a net
loss between End of First Month
and End of School
White 35 33 40
IIegro 30 25 31

7o Net loss during the Last Month
of School
White 7,278 7,274 7,161
Negro 1,201 1,057 1,232












1956-57 1957-58 1958-59
8. Increase in Average Daily
Membership over Previous Year
White 51,263 57,848 46,372
Negro 10,810 12,095 12,748

9. Net increase between End of one
year and End of First Month of
succeeding year
White N.A. 54,375 48,056
Negro N.A. 9,345 10,745

Table 1 gives, for a three year period, a comparison of the change in
membership at the close of each month of school from the membership at
the close of the first month.

Table 2 gives, for a three year period, the membership at the close of
each month of school expressed as a ratio or per cent of the membership
at the close of the first month of school.

Figures A and B express the data in Table 1 and Table 2 respectively in
graphic form.

Tables 3 and 5 show the change in membership at the end of each month
from the membership at the end of the first month, by race.

Tables 4 and 6 show the percentage change in membership at the end of
each month from the membership at the end'of the first month, by race.

Table 7 gives, by race and by county, number and per cent of change in
membership from the close of 1957-58 to the end of the first month of
1958-59. This same table gives changes in average daily membership for
purposes of comparison.

The pattern of monthly membership appears to be similar for each of the
last three years, although there seems to be a "flattening out" of the
peak enrollment period. In 1958-59 the White schools closed the year
with fewer-pupils than were in membership at the end of the first month.

An analysis of ninth month drop-outs appears on page 16.
