1. The number of graduates is as of the end of a school year while the population estimates are as of July 1 of the corresponding school year. Late graduates are included in the calculations while graduates from private schools, are not. For this reason, this methodology underestimates the "final" graduation rate and should not be used to infer dropout rate.
2. Data exclude publicly funded hospital and provincial schools, care, treatment and correctional facilities.
3. The graduation rate in the final year is slightly understated because some schools have not submitted course information before the data collection cutoff for this report.
4. Historical revisions have been made to this table to exclude students who graduated from Adult Learning Centres registered under the Adult Learning Centres Act, effective July 2001. This has the effect of understating the number of graduates and the associated graduation rate for Manitoba as compared to other provinces and jurisdictions and should not be considered directly comparable. (In 2007/2008, there were 1,174 Adult Learning Centre graduates who were excluded from the total graduates figure).
