Grade School and High School -- Select Primary Aggregation

The Commission's Custom Data Data Reports provide the number of students enrolled or completing requirements in the state, in a region or county, in a particular segment (system) or in a particular institution for a single year or pre-defined 5 and 10 year spans. Breakdown by ethnicity is available for all reports and gender is available in most cases. Most of the reports provide additional aggregation (grouping) as discussed in the descriptions below.

Statewide numbers for the most recent year can be generated by leaving all options set to their default value and generating the report.

Important Notes Important Notes:

The year in the data refers to different time frames depending on the data:

  • Unless otherwise specified, all enrollment, full-time equivalent enrollment, and transfer numbers are Fall-term data.
  • For enrollment, full-time equivalent enrollment, and Fall-term transfer numbers, the data is for the Fall term of the year shown. (e.g. 2000 refers to Fall 2000 data)
  • For full-year transfer numbers, the data is for the academic year ending in the year shown. (e.g. 2000 refers to Academic Year 1999-2000 data)
  • For high school graduation, K-12 enrollment, and degree and completion numbers, the data is for the academic year ending in the year shown. (e.g. 2000 refers to Academic Year 1999-2000 data)

 First-Time Students at Public Institutions / College Going Counts
(First-time students)

The Commission's most popular and powerful report can be used to generate a basic College Going Rate by dividing the number of PUBLIC first-time students by the number of high school graduates. Enter one or more partial high school names separated by the keyword OR (e.g. Westmoor OR Jefferson). Select the high school county (e.g. San Mateo) then generate the report to get the number of high school graduates and the number of first-time entering fall students. The high school can be public or private. The higher education institution must be public (UC, CSU, CCC).

This report can answer these questions:
• Where did high school graduates from a specific high school go to public higher education in California?
• What high schools did students at a specific public college or university in California graduate from?
• How many students from a specific high school went to a specific public college or university in California?

Important note: The data for first-time students have changed. See Changes to First-Time Freshmen and College-Going Data for more details.

Examples:
• State-wide number of first-time students enrolled in Community Colleges.
• Number from the Ojai Unified school district who enrolled as first-time students in public colleges in 1999.
• Number of high school graduates and A-G completers statewide in 2001.

 First-Time Students at Private Institutions / College Going Counts
(First-time students)

Similar to the First-Time Students at Public Institutions report above, this report offers data for private higher education institutions where available. These numbers are part of a voluntary data collection and subject to the participation of the private higher education institution which varies from year to year. Of the 75 institutions currently being contacted for this survey, as few as 19 (in 2002) and as many as 44 (in 1989) have responded and supplied data. Some institutions have responded only once and none have supplied data for all academic years. A list of the institutions being surveyed and the years that they responded is detailed on the Private Reporting page. The high school can be public or private. The higher education institution must be private.

Examples:
• Number of first-time students in 2000 at private colleges in California.
• Number of first-time students at Biola University over the last 5 years.
