What This Means

Dropout Rate is the rate by which students within a specified division have dropped out. This is not grade-level specific.

Diploma Rate is the rate by which students within a specified division have successfully graduated high school. This rate is also not grade-level specific.

Voting Turnout is the rate by which voting-eligible citizens within a specified division participate in election polls. This rate assumes the maximum turnout election for any given year (so, in essence, only includes nation-wide election results and excludes local elections). This rate is found by dividing the number of citizens that voted by the number of citizens registered to vote.

Standard Number is a metric used to compare the dropout rate of a specified division by the voting turnout rate so that trends may be more easily identified. This number is found via the following equation: ((1 - voting_turnout)/(registered)) - (dropout_rate - 100)).
