Looking for free data regarding the dropout rates in high schools in order to make a chloropleth map for my GIS class. I also want to georeference the highest and lowest rates. Thanks!
If your country's census has education statistics along the lines of education attained, you can probably figure it out from that (ie kind of reverse logic... sum of the people that have finished high school or above minus those of eligible age = drop outs). I know ours doesn't report dropouts directly
Research the data at the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) Home Page, a part of the U.S. Department of Education
