Summary

As a whole, Hispanics drop out of high school at higher rates and attain lower levels of education than non-Hispanics. The relative recency of migration among Hispanics may at least partially account for this trend. The status dropout rate for an age group (the percentage of that age group not enrolled in school and that has not completed high school) is one measure of dropping out. In 1997, a greater percentage of Hispanics than non-Hispanics aged 16 to 24 were born outside the United States. Among this group, the status dropout rate (39%) was higher than it was among first- and later-generation Hispanics (15 and 18%, respectively). First and later-generation Hispanics were two to three times more likely than their non-Hispanic peers to drop out. In 1997, the percentage of 25-to-34-year-olds who were dropouts was lower than it was in 1989 or 1979. Similar changes were occurring for all groups. The gaps in dropout rates between non-U.S.-born, first-generation, and later-generation Hispanics and comparable non-Hispanics were generally similar in 1979, 1989, and 1997. (SLD)
