Adjusted Cohort Graduation Rate (ACGR)
The Grad Nation report uses the Adjusted Cohort Graduation Rate. However, I could not find this variable in the data dictionary when searched for it.
The footnote references it here:
 The four-year adjusted cohort graduation rate is the number of students who graduate in four years with a regular high school diploma divided by the number of students who form the adjusted cohort for the graduating class. For any given cohort, students who are entering grade 9 for the first time form a cohort that is subsequently “adjusted” by adding any students who transfer into the cohort later during the next three years and subtracting any students who transfer out, emigrates to another country, or dies during that same period.
Can we get this variable in the data sets, or some guidance on what variables are used to calculate the adjusted cohort graduation rate?
