! Interpret data with caution. Estimate is unstable because the coefficient of variation (CV) for this estimate is 30 percent or greater (i.e., the standard error represents 30 percent or more of the estimate).
‡ Reporting standards are not met. The coefficient of variation (CV) for this estimate is 50 percent or greater (i.e., the standard error represents 50 percent or more of the estimate).
NOTE: All estimates are weighted by F2QWT, where G10COHRT=1. This weight chosen over BYF2WT, because it includes sophomore base year nonrespondents, added into ELS first follow-up and since all analysis variables used were from ELS second follow-up. Details may not sum to 100 percent due to rounding.
