How to Use the Chart
- Choose the cohort to look at graduation rates for the Class of 2020 or 9th-grade on-track rates for the multiclass 9th-grade cohort.
- To look at a narrower population, apply a filter.
- Choose the sort method for the chart. If sorting by graduation rate, the order of the bars will change when filters are applied. If sorting by characteristic, the order of the bars will remain static.

Example data exploration
OCID analysis found that juvenile justice contact is one of the top barriers to 4-year high school graduation.
- Among students in the Class of 2020, the 4-year graduation rate was 51% for students who ever had contact with the juvenile justice system.
- This rate is substantially lower than the average graduation rate of 81% for the entire Class of 2020.
- Filter by the equity consideration of Ever had an IEP to find that the 4-year graduation rate was 43% for students with a disability who also had involvement with juvenile justice.
- In comparison, the 4-year graduation rate was 13 points higher (56%) for students who had juvenile justice contact and did not have a documented disability.

Important Things to Know
- Measures of educational success can take different forms such as career and technical education, apprenticeship pathways, generalized equivalency diploma (GED), and 4-year or extended high school graduation. Of these outcomes, OCID currently only has access to 4-year high school graduation data for the 2020 class.
- Personal characteristics such as race and ethnicity or geography are intended to act as a proxy for experiences or exposures that cannot be measured accurately and completely with available data, such as systemic racism, toxic stress, or lack of access to resources. These data do not fully describe an individual’s identity or experience.
- Causal relationships between characteristics and outcomes or explanations for patterns cannot be drawn from this analysis. OCID’s subsequent in-depth analyses will use advanced statistical methods to better understand patterns and relationships.
- Currently, OCID only includes children born in Oregon from 2001 onwards. We estimate that 25% of children who are current Oregon residents were not born in the state and, thus, are not included in OCID. Please visit the Explore OCID page for more information.
- In order to protect the identities of individuals in the OCID population, and in adherence to data use agreements covering release of the data, results are suppressed if they do not meet minimum reporting thresholds. Please visit the Dataset Overview page for details.
