1 Black includes African American, Hispanic includes Latino, and Asian/Pacific Islander includes Native Hawaiian. Race categories exclude persons of Hispanic origin. American Indian or Alaska Native students and students of Two or more races are not shown separately, but are included in the total row and in rows for other student characteristics.
2 The 2- and 3-credit CTE concentrators are students who earned at least 2 or at least 3 credits, respectively, in one of the following 10 CTE areas: agriculture and natural resources; business, finance, and marketing; communications and communication technologies; computer and information sciences; construction; consumer services; engineering, design, and production; health care; mechanical repair and operation; and public services. Graduates who concentrated in more than one CTE area were counted only once. The 2- and 3-credit non-concentrators are students who did not earn at least 2 or at least 3 credits, respectively, in one CTE subject area.
NOTE: Public high school graduates are defined as students who graduated from a public high school with an honors or standard diploma by August 31 of their scheduled graduation year (2013). The table includes only graduates who had a complete grade 9–12 transcript, defined as one that recorded at least 16 Carnegie units (a Carnegie unit is a credit hour, i.e., the equivalent of a course taken every school day, one period per day, for a full school year), with a positive, nonzero number of units completed in English. See https://nces.ed.gov/surveys/ctes/xls/SSCT2018.xls for the taxonomy used to define subject areas. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding.
