The hot spots in South Philadelphia and Manayunk are surprising. I'm also wondering why some of the areas have the zip codes listed and others don't. What is the reason for that? EGS

This is a great little formula. Is there a way to adjust it so that it captures the timestamp as well? Currently, your formula only shows the latest text. Thanks.

it's a 6-year dropout rate most likely because they wanted to show more data than needed, just to get an idea of the timeline and evolution of this.

Not necessarily a timeline, but this is definitely the reason why they presented data from the last 6 years: so people would understand how serious the situation is Rory
