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 data important?

Educational data is significant because it influences other indicators such as literacy, unemployment, and average household income. And it is really important for the local government to make a policy about educational resource allocation.

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.

Comment

The data is important in social research and government policy. They measure the number of students and school enrollment in a district to allocate resources accordingly. The data on educational attainment shows the educational level of the locals and is an important basis for policy and business decisions.
It means that for some researchers, these data are very useful. But for most people, they are one of the factors to be considered or not in choosing to settle here.

La educación es muy importante para los niños pues ya que la educación empieza de la niñez para ser una persona de bien.

I do agree with you, the importance of education is that education itself helps one grow.
