  1. Data Source: UCOP.
  2. Average predicted graduation probabilities in parentheses. The predicted probabilities were formed using the estimated coefficients for Specification 4 of (5) for minorities and were predicted using the characteristics of minority students that enrolled at one of the UC campuses in the years 1995–1997.
