Definition and Source



This indicator represents the percentage of students in a cohort, adjusted for transfers in and out of school, district, or state, that graduate with a regular high school diploma within four years of the first enrollment in ninth grade. The denominator for the percentage is the cohort for that graduating class in respective geographic areas. 

A cohort includes the number of first-time 9th graders in the fall of a particular school year plus students who transfer in, minus students who transfer out during the next four school years.

Select counties are reported that have large enough cohorts of students to report by race/ethnicity.

NA - Data is suppressed if the number of students in the 7th through 12th grade cohort (denominator) is less than 10. Additional suppression is applied if the percentage approached zero or 100 using ranges. 
GEOGRAPHY - Data reflect the school location, not the student's place of residence.
NOTE - Data shown in table only includes public schools in North Dakota.
RACE - Hispanic is reported in the table as a distinct category; students are classified into only one of the reported groups. Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander is not reported for counties as the group is suppressed across all counties.
