Definition: Racial/ethnic composition of public high schools.

Notes: High schools defined as those with lowest grade of 7 through 12 and highest grade of 12 only.  Racial/ethnic shares of enrollment are based on total number of students for whom race/ethnicity was reported, which may not sum to total school enrollment reported separately.   Data for 1999-2001 geocoded from zip codes to metropolitan areas.   Data for multi-racial students only collected for all states as of 2010-2011.  Excludes metro areas in which 10% or more of students attended schools for which race/ethnicity data was not reported.
