Drop-out rates of some immigrant populations decline sharply between first (born outside the U.S.) and later generations.

In 2014 Hispanics born in the United States had lower high school dropout rates (8.1% for second generation Hispanics) then Hispanics born outside the United States (21%). The total national high school drop-out rate in 2014 was 2.6% for high income families, 5.4% for middle, 9.4% for low-income families, and 5.2% overall.

Hispanics born after 1997 (post-Millennials) have a much higher college attendance than Hispanic Millennials (born between 1980 and 1997.

Drop-out rates in 2014 were extremely high for some groups: descent from Guatemala 29% and descent from Burma 28%. These high rates may reflect a fact that more of these groups were born outside the U.S. as of 2014. Asian descent drop-out rate was 2.5%.
