U.S. education levels: state by state

Via the Chronicle of Higher Education’s Wired Campus blog comes a resource for analyzing educational attainment by state and county. The Lumina Foundation website provides state-by-state data on educational attainment levels, complete with nifty charts, like the one below for my home state.

Levels of education for Missouri residents, ages 25-34

It’s a resource that could come in handy for educational leaders who need to convince their state legislators of the importance of higher education. Wired Campus points out that the county-by-county data could be “useful for community colleges eager to argue that state governments should invest more heavily in postsecondary education.”
