Deep Dive Into Data

What is the highest educational attainment for RI’s population over 25?

Data on educational attainment is drawn from the 2018 US Census American Community Survey (ACS), 5-year Public Use Microdata Sample (PUMS), which is the most recent data available. Based on the ACS attainment categories, working-age adults (25-64) with an associate’s, bachelor’s, or graduate/ professional degree are considered “attained,” while those with some college/ no degree, high school diploma or equivalent, or below are considered “not attained.”
