|Figure 7. Actual and projected numbers for public high school graduates, by race/ethnicity: 199495 through 201920|
NOTE: The historical racial/ethnic time series were constructed using racial/ethnic high school
graduate data at the state level. In some instances, high school graduate data by race/ethnicity had
to be imputed. Further, in some instances, the racial/ethnic data had to be adjusted in order for it
to sum to the state total for high school graduates. For additional information, see the High School
Graduates section of appendix A. Race categories exclude persons of Hispanic ethnicity. Mean
absolute percentage errors of selected education statistics can be found in table A-2, appendix A.
