This report profiles the American high school senior of 2004 using data from the Education Longitudinal Study of 2002 (ELS:2002), the most recent secondary school longitudinal study conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). ELS:2002 began with a nationally representative sample of 10th-graders in public and private schools in the United States in 2002. The 2002 sophomore cohort was surveyed again in the spring of 2004 when most of the sample members were high school seniors. This sample was "freshened" with a sample of spring 2004 seniors who were not high school sophomores or were not in the United States in the spring of 2002. This population provides a nationally representative sample of the 2004 senior class, which is the focus of this report. This report is the third in a series of reports profiling contemporary American high school students. The following are appended: (1) Technical Notes and Glossary; and (2) Standard Error Tables. (Contains 22 tables & 3 figures.)
