NCES 2010313 Public School Graduates and Dropouts From the Common Core of Data: School Year 2006-07
This First Look report presents the number of high school graduates, the Averaged Freshman Graduation Rate (AFGR), and dropout data for grades 9 through 12 for public schools during the 2006-07 school year. State education agencies (SEAs) provided the data to the Common Core of Data (CCD) nonfiscal survey.
NCES 2009064 High School Dropout and Completion Rates in the United States: 2007
This report builds upon a series of National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) reports on high school dropout, completion, and graduation rates that began in 1988. The report includes discussions of many rates used to study how students complete or fail to complete high school. It presents estimates of rates for 2007 and provides data about trends in dropout and completion rates over the last three and a half decades (1972-2007) along with more recent estimates of on-time graduation. Among findings in the report was that among reporting states in 2006, the averaged freshman graduation rate (AFGR) was 73.2 percent. The rate provides an estimate of the percentage of public high school students who graduate with a regular diploma 4 years after starting 9th grade. The report also shows that students living in low-income families were approximately 10 times more likely to drop out of high school between 2006 and 2007 than were students living in high-income families. In October 2007, approximately 3.3 million civilian noninstitutionalized 16- through 24-year-olds were not enrolled in high school and had not earned a high school diploma or alternative credential.

NCES 1986223 High School and Beyond Postsecondary Education Transcript Study. Data File User's Manual, Contractor Report.
This document is intended as a data file user's manual for the dataset resulting from the High School and Beyond Postsecondary Education Transcript Study. The purpose of this study, conducted during 1984-85, was to provide reliable and objective information about the types and patterns of postsecondary courses taken by all members of the High School and Beyond (HS&B) 1980 senior cohort. Transcripts were requested from each school reported by sample members in their responses to the first and second follow-up surveys. Information from the transcripts, including terms of attendance, fields of study, specific courses taken, and grades and credits earned, were coded and processed into a system of data files designed to be merged with HS&B questionnaire data files. The Computer Assisted Data Entry System was used for processing the collected data into a four-level hierarchy consisting of data at the student, transcript, term, and course levels. The file includes specific data items in the student-level records including: physical tape position on the data record, a short description of the field contents, and the nature of the value stored in the field. Frequently distributions for all categorical variables on the student record are displayed in the enclosed codebook. The appendices, which make up over three-fourths of the document, contain: (1) a list of endorsing institutions; (2) postsecondary school codes in numerical and alphabetical order; (3) course subject codes in numerical order; (4) the data file record layout; (5) information on other HS&B data files available from the Center of Statistics; (6) sampling error and design effects; and (7) frequency distributions.
