! Interpret data with caution; the coefficient of variation is greater than or equal to 30 percent.
1 Percentages are based on all Title IV degree-granting institutions in the United States.
2 Percentages are based on the 53 percent of institutions that had any high school students taking courses for college credit during the 12-month 2010–11 academic year.
NOTE: Enrollments provided by institutions were unduplicated (each student was counted only once even if he or she took more than one course). High school students may have been counted twice if they took courses both within and outside of the dual enrollment programs at the same institution. Data for private nonprofit 2-year and private for-profit 2-year institutions are included in the totals and in analyses by size of institution but are not shown separately. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding or suppressed data.
