Definition and Source



The number of students in the four-year cohort who have not graduated and either have left school permanently or whose whereabouts are unknown. The percent is based on the cohort.

Some county totals include virtual schools whose students come from many counties, so their rates could be inflated. The counties most affected are Berrien, Clinton, Leelanau, Manistee and Montcalm.

Districts that cross county boundaries are included in the county indicated by the CEPI district code.

Data Source

The 2008 data for Hillsdale, Manistee and Tuscola are omitted due to data anomolies that compromised the county averages.
