Averaged freshman graduation rate for public high school students, by race/ethnicity: School year 2006–07
NOTE: New York and Kentucky did not report graduate counts by race/ethnicity, and
race/ethnicity graduate counts for the District of Columbia were suppressed due
to inaccuracy. Therefore, data for the AFGR for these states are not included. In
addition, the AFGR could not be calculated by race/ ethnicity for Nevada as enrollments
by race/ethnicity were not reported for the 2004–05 school year. For more
information, see Appendix A: Guide to Sources. The AFGR is an estimate
of the percentage of an entering freshman class that graduates within 4 years. For
2006–07, it equals the total number of diploma recipients in 2006–07
divided by the average membership of the 8th-grade class in 2002–03, the 9th-grade
class in 2003–04, and the 10thgrade class in 2004–05. Ungraded students
were allocated to individual grades proportional to each state's enrollment in those
grades. Graduates include only those who earned regular diplomas or diplomas for
Advanced academic achievement (e.g., honors diplomas) as defined by the
state or jurisdiction. Race categories exclude persons of Hispanic ethnicity.
