*These figures are complied from the census reports of the years considered
and from the biennial reports of the superintendent of public
instructions which cover those years

** This figure represents the total number of persons below 21, rather than
between 6 and 21; the percentage, therefore is, lower than the
percentage of persons of actual school age attending school.
