NOTES

1. These figures represent the plans for the coming fall of high school seniors as reported by school administrators during May of the seniors' graduating year.
2.  Includes both degree and non-degree postsecondary education.  Until 2005-06, NYC
distributed missing value cases proportionately among the different category options for post-graduation plans according to the proportion of non-missing.  Beginning in 2005-06, the chart counts missing NYC cases as "Other."
3.  Row totals may not sum to 100 due to rounding.
