What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the percentage of students who graduate high school within four years of their first enrollment in 9th grade.
Why this is important: 
Individuals who do not finish high school 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.
The Healthy People 2020 national health target is to increase the proportion of students who graduate high school within four years of their first enrollment in 9th grade to 82.4%.
Technical Note:  The distribution is based on data from 67 Florida counties.
