Community College Transfers: Black as a Percent of Total, 1996-2010

This report shows Black students who transferred as a percentage of the total by gender for 1996-2010.

Community College Transfers rates were calculated by dividing the number of Black students who transferred by the total number of students who transferred to California State University for academic years 1996-2010, the most recent years available. The total used for the denominator includes students with unknown genders and ethnicities. Data were obtained from the California State University.

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

Slight variations between the sum and men and women in the graph and the total line are due to rounding.

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.
