# Rounds to zero.
! Interpret data with caution.
NOTE: Some graduates in each category may have studied more than one foreign language. The distribution of graduates among the various levels of foreign language courses was determined by the level of the most academically advanced course they completed. Graduates who had completed courses in different languages were counted according to the highest level course completed. Graduates may have completed advanced levels of courses without having taken courses at lower levels. See Appendix B: Supplemental Notes for more details on these levels. Race categories exclude persons of Hispanic origin.
