Utilizing d3, a visualization framework, we have released a report which shows our graduation and retention data year-over-year, diagramming how a Freshman class shifts and evolves via a Sankey diagram. The visualization shows the students transferring to another campus, graduating or leaving the system.

New Freshman Characteristics
The New Freshman Characteristics highlight a continued increase in the ACT scores of the Fall 2013 Freshman cohort. For the Twin Cities campus, the mean composite ACT score is 27.9 and the median score is 28. The mean score for the Fall 2002 cohort was 24.7. The College of Science and Engineering reported the highest college level composite ACT score mean of 30.8, followed closely by the College of Biological Sciences with 30.3 (Source). It should be noted that the High School Rank should be viewed cautiously as fewer values are submitted with students' applications than in the past (Over 37% missing for Twin Cities campus).

Enrollment Map Highlights
The Fall Enrollment Map shows three views of the student population: Normalized by location, 1 Year Difference and 5 Year Difference. This tool can highlight some of the regional differences of UMN Institutions. For example, viewing all Twin Cities campus undergraduates compared to the Duluth campus undergraduates map highlights the number influence on the Arrowhead region of Duluth versus the Twin Cities metro area.

More on the Fall Enrollment Pivot Tool
The Fall Student Enrollment Pivot reports were created to enable our users to cross a few of our key variables which are reported separately on the Official Enrollment Reports. Take a look if you are hoping to find a finer detail level within variable sub-groups, for example Gender by Ethnicity Group. With the Fall 2013 release, we are able to provide six years of data on this report.
