College-Going Rates by Congressional District

1996 College-Going Rates to Public Colleges and Universities

This table provides college-going rates for Congressional districts in California. College-going rates were calculated by dividing the number of entering students from public schools in the district by the total number of graduates from public schools in the district. All categories of public schools are covered including comprehensive schools, continuation schools, and other categories of schools. Students with unknown genders and ethnicities and those from unknown schools were excluded from the data.

Data regarding high school graduates were obtained from the California Department of Education. Data for higher education enrollment were obtained from each of the segments and includes all students -- full-time, part-time, credit, and non-credit.

Note that the calculation of these rates is based on totals for each category such as year, district, and ethnicity. Rates do not entail longitudinal tracking of individual students.

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

Select the year needed from the drop-down list at the top of the options. Visit the Dates Available for availability for each type of data.
