dc.description.abstract This project studies the statistical analysis on causes of High School dropouts in Windhoek for the period time 2009 to 2012. The objective of the study is to find out the current dropout number according to sex, schools, grades and to come up with a regression model that can be used in the description, in the prediction and control of the number of dropouts on the basis of the independent variables by using regression analysis. Such prediction can aid Namibians as a whole to make informed decision to plan for the future. The increasing number of dropouts in Namibia especially in Windhoek, the unemployment and criminal records caused by dropouts served as a motivation for this study. SPSS software was used to analyse data, where parametric tests like independent t-test was used and by using ANOVA did work for this data and hence gave desirable results. The conditional backward logistic regression analysis was applied to model the data. Finally, a regression model was developed and they fit the data reasonably well. en_US
