Jobs for the Future
This report, comprised of key indicators and projections related to postsecondary attainment, is designed to help institutional, system, and state leaders advance a conversation about the need to increase college access and success for all students. The profiles included show that while states vary considerably in their current and expected performance in producing a college-educated population, all states must strengthen their postsecondary pipelines to be internationally competitive, meet emerging workforce needs, and promote social mobility and equity of opportunity. The following information is presented diagrammatically by state: (1) College-Education Population; (2) Changing Demographics; (3) Educational Attainment by Race and Ethnicity; (4) Student Progress To and Through College; and (5) Degrees Produced per 100 Full-Time Equivalent Students Enrolled.
