Over the past decade, chronic absence has gone from being a virtually unknown concept to a national education metric that provides every school in the nation with critical data on how many students are missing so many days of school it jeopardizes their academic success. The Hamilton Project at the Brookings Institution has created this interactive map using national data reported by school districts to the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights from the 2015-16 school year to allow anyone to explore rates of chronic absence at the school, district, state, and national levels by student and school characteristics. This interactive map accompanies an Attendance Works report, Data Matters: Using Chronic Absence to Accelerate Action for Student Success by Hedy Chang, Lauren Bauer, and Vaughan Byrnes.
