1 AFGR standards for Averaged Freshman Graduation Rate. Averaged Freshman Graduation Rate is an estimate of the percentage of an entering freshman class graduating in 4 years. For 2005–06, it equals the total number of diploma recipients in 2005–06 divided by the average membership of the 8th-grade class in 2001–02, the 9th-grade class in 2002–03, and the 10th-grade class in 2003–04.
2 Reporting states totals include any of the 50 states and the District of Columbia that reported data.
3 DoDDS and DDESS are the Department of Defense dependents schools (overseas) and the Department of Defense dependents schools (domestic), respectively.
NOTE: Ungraded students were allocated to individual grades proportional to each state's enrollment in those grades. Black includes African American, Hispanic includes Latino, Asian includes Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander, and American Indian includes Alaska Native. Race categories exclude Hispanic origin unless specified.
