School Attendance, High School Students


An analytic cross-sectional study was done which involved 174 students both males and females from Grade VII to fourth year level following proportionate allocation. The students were chosen using stratified random sampling. A self-administered questionnaire was used to gather data on students' attendance from first quarter and to third quarter of the current school year. Data was then analysed using percentage, frequency, and chi-square. The study concluded that students belonging to a one-parent home were twice, while those with dysfunctional family and working students were thrice more likely to be absent in school.
