The author presents data on Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, and Community day schools in the United States. He compares enrollment profiles to data from a 1998-99 study to determine trends. He finds that overall enrollment has increased, with the vast majority enrolled in Orthodox schools. Additionally, there are a large number of small schools with fewer than 100 students. New York has the largest number of day schools of any state.
