We asked data experts from across the nation to experiment with public data sets and demonstrate insights that could help boost U.S. high school graduation rates to 90 percent, up from 81 percent today. They studied everything from high school student transfer rates to cold-weather climates.
Our world will hold roughly 8 billion people by 2025.
