1Includes regular and other diplomas as well as other completers, but does not include high school equivalencies (e.g., GED). Total completers may be different than reported on the state-level file.
2The 4-year completion rate is calculated by dividing the number of high school completers in a given year by the number of high school completers in that year and dropouts over a 4-year period.
3Other completers data are missing for the following states: New Hampshire, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
4Values for 1 year of the 4-year completion rate denominator are imputed. See the Technical Notes for more details.
5States that reported completers but not 4 consecutive years of dropout data cannot have a 4-year high school completion rate.
SOURCE: Data are reported by states to the U.S. Department of Education, National Center for Education Statistics, Common Core of Data (CCD), "Local Education Agency Universe Dropout and Completion Data File: School Year 2000-01" Version 1a.
