Data item: Educational attainment - persons 25 years and over - percent high school graduate or higher, 2006-2010

Source: U. S. Census Bureau, American Community Survey, 5-Year Estimates. Updated every year. http://factfinder2.census.gov

Definitions:

High School Graduates include people whose highest degree was a high school diploma or its equivalent, people who attended college but did not receive a degree, and people who received an associate�s, bachelor�s, master�s, or professional or doctorate degree. People who reported completing the 12th grade but not receiving a diploma are not included.

Persons with a Bachelor's Degree or Higher are those who have received a bachelor's degree from a college or university, or a master's, professional, or doctorate degree.

These data include only persons 25 years old and over. The percentages are obtained by dividing the counts of graduates by the total number of persons 25 years old and over.

The data for each geographic area are presented together with margins of error at factfinder2.census.gov.
