This report contains data on the educational attainment of persons in the United States from the Current Population Surveys conducted by the Bureau of the Census in March 1992 and 1993. Summary data on educational attainment by age, sex, race, and Hispanic origin are shown for both years in Table 1. Other detailed data are shown for 1993 in tables 2 through 16. These tables allow the continuation of the biennial series of data from previous reports. Tables 17, 18, and 19 contain time series of data from 1940 to 1993. The detailed tables present data on educational attainment for persons aged 15 and older by age, sex, race, Hispanic origin, marital status, labor force status, occupation, income, earnings, and region of residence. Summary data are also presented for states and large metropolitan areas. Data indicate that four-fifths of adults have completed high school, and that over one-fifth have completed college. Educational levels of the population as a whole continue to rise, but there are variations by race and ethnicity. Five text tables, four figures, and 19 detailed tables present census figures. Nine tables in two appendixes contain additional details. (SLD)
