|Figure 4. Averaged freshman graduation rates of public high school students, by state: School year 2004–05
|NOTE: The averaged freshman graduation rate (AFGR) is an estimate of the percentage of an entering freshman class graduating in 4 years. For 2004–05, it equals the total number of diploma recipients in 2004–05 divided by the average membership of the 8th-grade class in 2000–01, the 9th-grade class in 2001–02, and the 10th-grade class in 2002–03. See table 12 in this report for more information about these state rates.
