Definition: Percentage of public school students in grades 5, 7, and 9 meeting 6 out of 6 fitness standards, by race/ethnicity.

Footnote: In order to meet fitness standards, children must score in the "Healthy Fitness Zone" on 6 out of 6 fitness tests (for more information, see "Measures of Physical Fitness" below). These data may not be comparable with data for earlier years because new standards were applied to the aerobic capacity and body composition fitness areas in 2011.
