Education can lead to many benefits, including a prosperous career, financial security, and improved quality of life. A population that is better educated has less unemployment, reduced dependence on public assistance programs, and greater tax revenue. Education also plays a key role in the reduction of crime, improved public health, and greater political and municipal engagement.

Data is collected from the American Community Survey (ACS) 1-Year Estimates. For further information about the American Community Survey (ACS) please see the Source tab. 

There are many external contributing factors affecting the projection to confidently determine an exact numerical target, therefore we have elected to set the target to increase.

Due to the impact of COVID-19, the Census Bureau changed the 2020 American Survey System (ACS) release schedule to only release a limited number of data tables containing experimental estimates for the nation, states, and the District of Columbia. 

The data for this indicator is obtained from the American Community Survey 1-Year Estimates.  The American Community Survey (ACS) is administered by the United States Census Bureau. It is an ongoing survey that provides data annually. This information is used by communities, state governments, and federal programs to make decisions. The One-Year Estimate data provides 12 months of collected data from areas with populations over 65,000 and represents the most current data available.

There is an approximately one-year delay of the availability of ACS data.
