State: County:

A high school drop out is defined as a person who was enrolled in school at some time during the previous school year but wasnt enrolled at the beginning of the current year. In addition, he or she has not graduated from high school or completed a state- or district-approved educational program. Finally, he or she has not transferred to another school and is not absent due to suspension, illness, or death.

The high school drop out rate, as reported here, is the proportion of students in a particular age range who are drop outs in a given year, according to the definition above. Not all districts and states provide drop out information to the National Center for Education Statistics, which is our source for high school drop out rates. For more detail, please see
