This section provides information about Census coverage and reporting for establishments in the Educational Services sector.

 Establishments Covered

Educational Services establishments provide instruction and training in diverse educational settings. Teachers or instructors usually deliver educational services that explain, tell, demonstrate, supervise, and direct learning. NAICS classifies establishments in the Educational Services sector using numbers that start with 61.

The Economic Census covers all Educational Services establishments that operated during all or part of calendar year 2012, except elementary and secondary schools, colleges, universities, and professional schools. Coverage includes establishments that are privately owned and operated, and those not operated for profit. Examples include business schools; computer and management training schools; technical and trade schools; fine arts, language, and recreation schools; and educational support services.

 Census Mail Package

Educational Services establishments with paid employees will receive a Census mail package with several types of materials. The materials are similar in content, but customized to make reporting easier for different groups of covered establishments. Each establishment will receive either an Information Sheet and Census form, or a Classification form. Companies with multiple operating establishments will receive the appropriate Information Sheet for every group of similar forms, and not necessarily one Information Sheet for every form.

Information Sheets provide general information about the Census and instructions for reporting selected items on the Census form. Education Services establishments will receive Information Sheet SV-SM_I_12.

Census Forms describe each data item for Educational Services establishments, and provide instructions and formats for reporting them. Census forms for these establishments are numbered ED-61xxx.
