The present study is within the project "Modeling of academic performance in school dropout Early Education and Social Work, 2005-2009," of the UNIVERSIDAD DEL PACIFICO, which aims to find a model dropout of both schools. We analyzed a total of 224 cases of dropout students in the state of the schools in the period mentioned above. We used variables such as marital status, age, academic performance, income score, average grade school education, among others, for a total of 120 statistical tests, using all possible combinations of components of each variable. The results show that during the study period, the distribution of these variables is repeated every year, which makes us think about this repetitive behavior in both schools, and challenges us to determine whether the cases are at the institution or variables in the study pool. Furthermore, the dropout is highly skewed by single marital status, and youth from 23 to 30 years. Another conclusion is that the PSU or scholastic aptitude test (taken at national level), is less relevant than NEM or high school note, the article determines the weights of importance of these variables in the universe under study for find the target model.
