WICHE Insights | Impact and Implications: Projections of Male & Female High School Graduates


This brief, a supplement to WICHE’s December 2016 Knocking at the College Door report, aims to advance the conversation on these demographic changes and offer additional detail about trends that influence higher education decision-making. In this brief, the previously published national, regional, and state race/ ethnicity projections are now also disaggregated by student sex. These more-detailed projections further expose the pervasiveness of gaps in graduation rates for minority males. As the nation and many states enter a period of declining numbers of youth, improving high school graduation rates among minority males is critical to increasing overall educational attainment.
