Q: Does the public high school graduation rate vary by State?
A: On average, graduation rates in the South and West were lower than the rates in the Northeast and Midwest in the 2017-2018 school year.

NA: Data not available.
* The adjusted cohort graduation rate (ACGR) is the percentage of public high school freshmen who graduate with a regular diploma within 4 years of starting 9th grade. Students who are entering 9th grade for the first time form a cohort for the graduating class. The cohort is "adjusted" by adding any students who subsequently transfer into the cohort and subtracting any students who subsequently transfer out, emigrate to another country, or die.
