Educational Attainment

Educational equity is necessary to build a strong workforce. Good jobs require ever-higher levels of skills and education, but our education system is not adequately preparing young people of color to succeed in the knowledge-driven economy. Closing wide and persistent racial gaps in educational attainment and reducing student debt is key to building a strong workforce prepared to perform and create the jobs of the future. The Educational Attainment indicator measures the educational attainment levels of the working-age population (ages 25-64)

Step 1: Go to the Educational Attainment Starter Workbook page in Tableau Public.

Step 2: Download the workbook and open in the Tableau Public App. Instructions on downloading the Tableau Public App can be found on our Using Tableau page.
