This report has three parts. The first section provides a brief description of the full-time first-year (FYFT) undergraduate cohort enrolled at South Dakota State University (SDSU) from 2005 to 2014. The second section provides projections by year for the FYFT enrollment to the year 2020. The third section provides project changes between 2014 and 2020 in public high school graduates in South Dakota by school district. Three datasets are utilized for this report. The FYFT undergraduate enrollment data from 2005 to 2014 are provided by the Institutional Research Office at SDSU. These data are used for preparing descriptive statistics and calculating numbers of high school graduates from South Dakota, Minnesota, and Iowa, respectively, enrolled at SDSU as FYFT students from 2005 to 2014. Data of enrollment in grades 7-12 from 2009 to 2012 and numbers of high school graduates from 2005 to 2014 are downloaded from the Department of Education of South Dakota, Minnesota, and Iowa, respectively. These data are used to calculate: (1) grade-progression rates and graduation rates; and (2) numbers of enrollment in grades 7-12 in 2014. The enrollment and graduation data by school district in South Dakota are used for projections of changes in numbers of high school graduates by school district in the state. Finally, a crosswalk file linking the Census school district identification and the within-state school district identification is derived from National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) for making the school district map.
