Q&A

What is school enrollment?

Enrollment refers to being registered or listed as a student in an educational program leading to a high school diploma or college degree. This may be a public school or college, a private school or college, or a home school. In some surveys, the Census Bureau also asks about school "attendance", which is treated as equivalent to enrollment.

What is educational attainment?

Educational attainment refers to the greatest level of education obtained, whether it be a bachelor's degree or a high school diploma. In the population of 25 years and over, there are 197.27 million people (88.5 percent) who graduate from high school or higher in the U.S.

Why is educational attainment data important?

Educational attainment is significant because it influences other indicators such as literacy, unemployment, and average household income. This means that cities that perform well in educational achievement frequently perform well in these other areas as well. Education reflects not only the quality of a person but also the civilization of society and society as a whole.

Where does the data come from?

Education data comes from U.S. Census Bureau, 2016-2020 American Community Survey 5-Year Estimates. Updated December 2021.
