Actual and projected numbers for public high school graduates, by race/ethnicity: 1994–95 through 2019–20
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.
