NOTE: The Averaged Freshman Graduation Rate (AFGR) is an estimate of the percentage of an entering freshman class graduating with a regular diploma in 4 years. For 2007–08, it equals the total number of regular diploma recipients in 2007–08 divided by the average membership of the 8th-grade class in 2003–04, the 9th-grade class in 2004–05, and the 10th-grade class in 2005–06.
SOURCE: State total derived from the U.S. Department of Education, National Center for Education Statistics, Common Core of Data (CCD), "NCES Common Core of Data State Dropout and Completion Data File," School Year 2007–08, Version 1b; "State Nonfiscal Survey of Public Elementary/Secondary Education," 2003–04, Version 1b; 2004–05, Version 1f; 2005–06, Version 1b. Diploma counts by sex were derived from EDFACTS data for the 2007–08 school year. Enrollment counts by sex were derived from the same CCD sources as the overall state estimates.
