College-Going Rates by County from Public Schools Charts

1997 College-Going Rates to Any California Public College or University

Focus on Sacramento County

This chart provides college-going rates for counties in California. College-going rates were calculated by dividing the number of entering students from public schools in the county by the total number of graduates from public schools in the county. 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, county, 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.

Data collection for Fall 2009 is in progress. As a result, more recent data than what is displayed may be available for some systems. Visit the Custom Data Reports for the most up-to-date data. 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. The Sources and Timing of Data page has an approximate schedule for each type of data the Commission collects.
