Percentage of 9th-grade students  participating in at least one math- or science-related school-sponsored  activity,  by race/ethnicity and sex: 2009

1 Total includes other racial/ethnic groups not shown separately in the figure.
NOTE: Data are based on student responses. Student reports about school-sponsored activities refer to the period "since the beginning of the last school year," which for most of these students was 8th grade, or the fall of 2008. Reporting standards for Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander and American Indian/Alaska Native males and females were not met; therefore, data for these racial groups are not shown in the figure. Data weighted by W1STUDENT. Race categories exclude persons of Hispanic ethnicity.
