1 Includes unclassified courses not shown separately.
2 Includes students who complete at least 12 Carnegie units in academic courses, but less than 3 Carnegie units in any occupational education field.
3 Includes students who complete at least 3 Carnegie units in an occupational education field, but less than 12 Carnegie units in academic courses.
4 Includes students who complete at least 12 Carnegie units in academic courses and at least 3 Carnegie units in an occupational education field.
5 Includes students who complete less than 12 Carnegie units in academic courses and less than 3 Carnegie units in an occupational education field.
NOTE: The Carnegie unit is a standard of measurement that represents one credit for the completion of a 1-year course. Data differ slightly from figures appearing in other NCES reports because of differences in taxonomies and case exclusion criteria. Race categories exclude persons of Hispanic ethnicity. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding. Standard errors appear in parentheses.
