What does “structurally disadvantaged race” mean in the report tables and bar graphs?

To help educators recognize and address disparities in student experience, reports display results separately for members of racial and ethnic groups that are structurally disadvantaged within the U.S. education system (according to national education statistics on college access). Students are considered members of a group that is structurally disadvantaged in education if they identify with one or more of the following groups: Black, Latinx, Pacific Islander, and/or Native American. To learn more about how we collect and why we group race-ethnicity responses, read How are race-ethnicity data collected and reported?


Elevate enables educators to define their own custom disaggregation groups with the Target Group feature.
