1 Averaged freshman graduation rate (AFGR) is an estimate of the percentage of an entering freshman class graduating in 4 years. For 2004–05, it equals the total number of diploma recipients in 2004–05 divided by the average membership of the 8th-grade class in 2000–01, the 9th-grade class in 2001–02, and the 10th-grade class in 2002–03.
2 First-time 9th-graders were estimated as the average of student membership in grades 8, 9, and 10 in 3 consecutive years.
3 Reporting states totals include the 50 states and the District of Columbia for which data were available.
4 AFGR was more than 100 percent. Transfers in and out of public schools during high school can distort the AFGR for relatively small populations.
5 Missing data prevented the caculation of AFGR.
NOTE: Ungraded students were allocated to individual grades proportional to each state's enrollment in those grades.
