! Interpret data with caution. The coefficient of variation (CV) for this estimate is 30 percent or greater.
1 Total includes other racial/ethnic groups not shown separately in the figure.
NOTE: Estimates represent all U.S. students who attended 1st grade in the spring of 2000 and then were in a U.S. 8th grade in the 200607 school year. "Algebra or an advanced course other than algebra" includes algebra I, integrated or sequential mathematics, algebra II, and geometry. Estimates were weighted by C7CPTM0. Reporting standards for Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander students, American Indian/Alaska Native students, and students of two or more races were not met; therefore, data for these groups are not shown in the figure. Race categories exclude persons of Hispanic ethnicity.
