! Interpret data with caution. The coefficient of variation for this estimate is between 30 and 50 percent (i.e., the standard error is at least 30 percent and less than 50 percent of the estimate).
NOTE: Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding or missing values in cells where reporting standards were not met. These estimates include private schools which provide instruction for one or more of grades kindergarten through twelve (or comparable ungraded levels).
