Youth are enrolled in post-secondary or enlisted in the military within one year of graduation.
The decision about the next step to take in life after high school is an important one, and it is not always taken immediately after graduation. We can get a better picture of results if we wait for one year (second fall) after graduation to measure post-secondary enrollment.

To provide the most current data possible, we report enrollment by first fall after graduation in our dashboard. For completeness, we provide a deeper data dive on both measures in the links below.
