Private School Universe Survey (PSS)

The purposes of PPS data collection activities are: to build an accurate and complete list of private schools to serve as a sampling frame for NCES sample surveys of private schools; and to report data on the total number of private schools, teachers, and students in the survey universe. The PSS has been conducted every 2 years with the first collection taking place during the 1989-90 school year.
