Handling of data items without a positive reported data value.

All data elements are either completed by the state or have been filled with a “0,” “-1,” “-2,” “-9,” “M,” or “N.”


0 - There are no occurrences of this data element. A value was expected and measured, but there were no cases in the category.

-- For example, a district having no 12th graders would report 0.


M (or -1 for numeric values) - Data are missing. A value was expected and none was measured.

-- For example, a district that has at least one 12th grader but cannot measure the number of 12th graders would report -1.


N (or -2 for numeric values) - Data are not applicable. A value was neither expected nor measured.

-- For example, an elementary district not offering 12th grade  would report -2 for 12th graders.
