Definitions: Percentage of persons ages 18-24 who reported that they had neither attained a high school diploma or GED.

The American Community Survey is now used as the main source of educational attainment data from the Census Bureau because it has a larger sample and provide more reliable statistics on smaller geographical areas. The numbers reflect and average over the five-year period.

Data Source: U.S. Census Bureau, American Community Survey 5-year estimates, 2006-2010 through 2015-2019, Table S1501.

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 2010–2014 estimates with 2015–2019 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
