! Interpret data with caution. Users are cautioned against performing t-tests on cells with NAEP proficiency estimates that have been calculated with less than 62 observations (N). NAEP considers a cell size of 62 the minimum required for performing meaningful comparisons.

‡ Reporting standards not met. Means and standard errors based on less than 30 observations are not reported. If necessary, so as not to disclose the number of observations in these cells, other cells were not reported.

1 American Indian includes Alaska Native, Black includes African American, Pacific Islander includes Native Hawaiian, and Hispanic includes Latino. Race categories exclude Hispanic origin unless specified.

2 "Region of the country" refers to the Census-defined regions. For more information about Census-defined regions, see the U.S. Census Bureau online publication "Census Regions and Divisions of the United States" (http://www.census.gov/geo/www/us_regdiv.pdf [1.1M PDF]).
