1 Data are imputed. New Jersey did not report graduate data by gender.
NOTE: Reported rates are presented rounded to the whole percentage point where the related population size is greater than 300. Estimates have been top coded to protect the confidentiality of individual student data. Top coding is a process where rates at or above a specific level are reported in a range, rather than a precise percentage, to protect the privacy of individuals represented either within the reported rate or its inverse. Based on the population size, top coded estimates are presented as being greater than or equal to a certain percent. For example, a rate of 94 percent may be presented as “≥90” percent for one population and “≥80” percent for another, dependent on total population size. United States total includes data from the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Black includes African American, Hispanic includes Latino, Asian/Pacific Islander includes Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander, and American Indian includes Alaska Native. Race categories exclude Hispanic origin unless specified.
