SFUSD Enrollment Stats

SFUSD has posted the enrollment info for Round 1.

I hate the way the district breaks down the statistics.  Information such as "Overall (K-12), 82% of applicants (11,539) received one of their choices, compared to 80% last year (11,525)" is fairly useless without knowing the mean number of schools requested.  If everyone listed 5 schools,  it may be interesting, but if the mean is 40 schools less so. 

Likewise, "Overall (K-12), 59% of applicants (8,305) received their first choice, compared to 60% last year (8,506)" is not very interesting without breaking out sibling and CTIP.  CTIP info is completely missing from all reporting presented.
