One of the hotspots is Kensington, which was the focus of the Notebook's 2012 edition looking at the dropout issue.

Which one demographic factor affects dropout rate the most?

Students' willingness to do what parents expect and teacher ask of them?

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?

zip codes are shown where the dropout rate exceeds 31% ...

Do these figures take into account the students that reside in one neighborhood and take the bus to go to school in another neighborhood?

why 6 year?

why is it a 6 year drop out rate? should we be looking at a 4 year time span?

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
