Comment
498 271 62.5683.4 DNG (Did Not Graduate) are NOT included in any overall percent living or deceased statistics as many DNG's must be deceased but the USNA is not aware of the status. As noted, for this near 80-year-old age group, the anticipated percent living is about 53%. The USNA '59 DNG's with a 84% living is considered a statistical anonomaly and as such is not used in any of the percentage statistics on this website.
