Families where household head lacks a high school diploma in North Carolina

Change Indicator


Data Provided By

Definitions:  Percent of families in which the household head does not have a high school diploma or equivalent.

Data Source: U.S. Census Bureau, American Community Survey 5-year estimates, 2006-2010 through 2013-2017, Table B17018.

Footnotes: Although overlapping 5-year time periods are shown for this indicator, the Census Bureau suggests comparing periods that do not overlap—for example, comparing 2006–2010 estimates with 2011–2015 estimates. This means waiting longer to identify a trend. However, in areas undergoing fundamental shifts in the size or composition of the population, change may be so substantial that it will be obvious after only a few years. For more information on making comparisons with ACS multi-year estimates, see Appendix 1 of ACS General Handbook
