New Hampshire has one of the best high school graduation rates in the country, according to statistics collected from the U.S. Education Department.

New Hampshire's rate for the 2013-2014 school year is 88.1 percent, higher than the national rate at 82 percent.

Across the country, Iowa had the highest graduation rate, at 90 percent; followed by Nebraska at 89.7 percent; New Jersey at 88.6 percent, and Texas at 88.3 percent. New Hampshire came next.

The District of Columbia had the lowest, with a 61 percent graduation rate.

The graduation rate is calculated by using a formula in which the number of graduates in a given year is divided by the number of students who enrolled four years earlier.
