Geography and High School Graduation Rates

gradrates
America’s Promise Alliance is getting a lot of press for a report they recently published on high school graduation rates. While the report itself contains many analytical maps, none of the news reports I’ve seen include any. I like to see reports recognizing the influence of geography. But I wonder if there may be other explanations. For example, would the rates in different cities still differ that much after adjusting for race/ethnicity?

Too bad GeoCommons is not up and running, otherwise the data could get posted there and we could do further analysis.
