    The raw data used for this analysis was obtained from the 2007 edition of the ADEA Official Guide to Dental Schools. The generic info can also be found on www.adea.org/Resources/OG/OG_3_WhereToApply.pdf.

    U.S. Population estimates were obtained from http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0762156.html.


    In view of the amount of data that needed to be manipulated, errors are highly likely. Should one be noted please inform and an attempt will be made to correct such errors.

    Puerto Rico did not report data on minority applicants and was not used in minority applicants to enrollees calculations.

    Code:
    	2006 Enrollment Data		
    				
    		     Total	% Enrol	U.S. Pop*
     			
    				
    White		       3089	66	80.2
    African America		282	6	12.8
    Hispanic		290	6	14.4
    Native American		 39	1	1
    Asian American		971	21	4.3
    Total                  4671
    
    


    U.S. Population- May 10,2006 Estimate. "Percentages do not add to 100% due to rounding off and because Hispanics may be counted under more than one category."
