Status completion rates of 18- through 24-year-olds not currently enrolled in high school or below, by race/ethnicity and sex: October 2008
NOTE: Status completion rates measure the percentage of 18- through 24-year-olds who are not enrolled in high school and who also hold a high school diploma or equivalent credential, such as a General Educational Development (GED) certificate. Those still enrolled in high school are excluded from the analysis. Respondents were able to identify themselves as being two or more races. The White (non-Hispanic), Black (non-Hispanic), Asian/Pacific Islander (non-Hispanic), and American Indian/ Alaska Native (non-Hispanic) categories consist of individuals who considered themselves to be one race and who did not identify as Hispanic. Non-Hispanics who identified themselves as multiracial are included in the Two or more races (non-Hispanic) category. The Hispanic category consists of Hispanics of all races and racial combinations.
