! Interperet 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).
‡ Reporting standards not met. There are fewer than 15 sample cases or the coefficient of variation (CV) for this estimate is 50 percent or greater (i.e., the standard error is 50 percent or more of the estimate).
NOTE: Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding, missing values in cells where reporting standards were not met, or sample cases with a CV of 50 percent or more. These estimates include private schools that provide instruction for one or more of grades kindergarten through 12 (or comparable ungraded levels).
