Definition and Source



Percentage of persons ages 18 to 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.


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 2016–2020 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
