Because of a change in Ohio's student-enrollment reporting practices, some of the calculations in the print edition of Education Week's Diplomas Count 2012 report are incorrect, including the national graduation rate. The correct four-year U.S. graduation rate for the class of 2009 is 73.4 percent. The graduation rate for Ohio has also been revised upward, to 76.4 percent, for that state's 2009 high school graduates.

The recalculations affect several other charts and graphics in the printed report, which was mailed to subscribers with the June 6 issue of Education Week.

The digital edition of Diplomas Count 2012 already includes the recalculations.
