College-Going Rates by Ethnicity and Gender from Public Schools
1997 College-Going Rates to Public Colleges and UniversitiesThis table breaks down college-going rates by ethnicity and gender. College-going rates were calculated by dividing the number of entering students for each ethnicity and gender, by the total number of graduates for each ethnicity/gender combination. 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. First-time students counts include full- and part-time students and credit and non-credit students. 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, county, and ethnicity. Rates do not entail longitudinal tracking of individual students. Ethnicity data is collected separately by K-12 schools and higher education institutions. Consequently, college-going rates may be affected by variations in reporting of ethnicity. Click on an Ethnicity or Gender label to see a chart of the trend of college-going rates over time. Important note: The data for first-time students have changed. See Changes to First-Time Freshmen and College-Going Data for more details. Data collection for Fall 2009 is in progress.
