Educational and Demographic Profile: San Francisco County
California Postsecondary Education Commission
This profile uniquely presents educational and socioeconomic information for San Francisco County, nearby counties, and the state. It highlights the relationship between various factors that affect the economic well-being of individuals and communities. This information provides a framework for enhanced communication and collaboration between the agencies, at both the state and local level, that have responsibility for education, economic development, workforce training, or social services. The relationship between educational attainment and income is clearly depicted by the maps on pages 4 and 10. The maps, along with the other data presented in the profile, unmistakably show how socio economic conditions vary from place to place in California. This geographic variation must be taken into consideration in the development, implementation, and evaluation of policies to give Californians better opportunities to succeed in school and in life. Highlights for the county include: 53% of recent high school graduates completed college preparatory courses, compared to 35% statewide; 35% of recent high school graduates entered CSU or UC, compared to 18% statewide; and 45% of the county population has a Bachelor's or higher-level degree, compared to 27% statewide.
