The NM PED provides graduation rates by district and school. For this website, the countywide rate was estimated using the 2018-2019 enrollment data for high schools. Ordinarily, the rate is calculated based on the number of HS students "ever enrolled for one or more semesters during 4 years of the cohort," but this information was not available at the county-level.
