This database reports the total number of dropouts, enrollment, dropout rates, Average Freshman Graduation Rates (AFGR), and other completions by ethnicity for grades 9-12 for U.S. states. Data are not available for all categories in all years.  Years reported refer to the first year of a traditional academic year, e.g., 2007 data reflect drop out and completion figures for academic year 2007-8.  Note, for 2009, gender categories are not available. 


Reported totals for diplomas can exceed the sum of the race/ethnicity detail because states may report students in the total for whom race/ethnicity is not reported. AFGR is calculated using reported enrollment base variables, which estimate the number of first-time freshmen for that class. (E.g., 2007-8 graduation rates are based on estimates of the number of freshmen four years earlier, in 2004-5.)
