Local Education Agency (School District) Universe Survey Dropout and Completion Data

The primary purposes of the Local Education Agency (School District) Universe Survey Dropout and Completion Data are:

  • to report the numbers of dropouts from each of grades 7 through 12; and
  • to report the numbers of high school diploma recipients and other high school completers.

Files for school years 1997-98 through 2001-02, and beginning with the 2005-06 school year include numbers of dropouts, diploma recipients, and other high school completers for all local education agencies reporting these data in agreement with NCES definitions.

Files for school years 2002-03 through 2004-05 include only dropout data for school districts enrolling 1,000 or more students. High school graduate data are included in the Local Education Agency Universe file for 2002-03 through 2004-05.

Starting with the 2005-06 school year, dropout and completion data are available for every school district. The dropout data are no longer available to the general public disaggregated by grade, race/ethnicity, and gender at the school district level. Dropout counts and associated rates are only provided in aggregate, grades 9-12, form. Furthermore, due to disclosure concerns, dropout counts of 1, 2, and 3 have been recoded as -3 and dropout counts that approach or exceed the associated membership count have been recoded as -4. Please review the data file documentation for more details.
