Measurement
Period:
2012-2013
Location: County : Pinal
[ View Every County ]
Comparison: AZ State Value
Categories: Education / Educational Attainment in Adult Population

What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the percentage of students from grades 7-12 who dropped out of school in the previous academic year.
Why this is important: 
High school drop outs are more likely than people who finish high school to lack the basic skills required to function in an increasingly complicated job market and society. Adults with limited education levels are more likely to be unemployed, on government assistance, or involved in crime.
Technical Note:  The regional value is compared to the Arizona state value.
