You can hover over the bars in charts to see the specific count associated with each bar.

Gender and Ethnicity Chart results

The 2-Dimensional chart shows the percentage graduated versus percentage enrolled versus percentage not graduated & not enrolled for each cohort listed on the y-axis on the left for the two dimensions that you selected.

The legend on the right indicates what each color represents on the chart: green for percentage graduated in that cohort, blue for percentage enrolled & not graduated in that cohort, and red for percentage not graduated & not enrolled in that cohort.

The chart also provides markers at the 80% and 50%.
