High school graduation rate

This indicator shows the percentage of students who graduate high school in four years. Completion of high school is one of the strongest predictors of health in later life. People who graduate from high school are more likely to have better health outcomes, regularly visit doctors, and live longer than those without high school diplomas.

    Other The SHIP currently uses the four-year adjusted cohort graduation rate which calculates the percentage of students who graduate in 4 years in an adjusted cohort which includes the group of students who enter 9th grade for the first time, and adjusts for transfers in and out of the cohort. The SHIP previously used the Leaver Rate to measure high school graduation (http://www.mdreportcard.org/supporting/ definitions.aspx?WDATA=def&K=01AAAA&inc=graduation).
