This database contains indicators of the major points in North Carolina’s educational pipeline from high school graduation through postsecondary completion. These indicators are critical transition points, and future progress is often dependent on success at each point. Moreover, they are research-validated; peer-reviewed social science research highlights these transition points as vulnerable periods for students and key opportunities for potential interventions.

This database is a synthesis of publicly available data and data acquired by special request from the:

  • North Carolina Department of Public Instruction
  • University of North Carolina system
  • North Carolina Community College system
