It speaks to retention only if you know how many seniors they should have in the chapter. If you know that number you probably already know how many they have now.

If they have hardly any seniors maybe it's because three years ago they had a bad recruitment and hardly got any freshman. They could have 100% retention and still have low numbers.

Also, even if they had retention issues that led to a small senior number now, without knowing when those issues occured it won't tell you much about current retention. Maybe 2 - 3 years ago they had a loss of girls but have been smooth sailing since.
