Tennessee County Higher Education Profiles, 2010
Tennessee Higher Education Commission
The "Tennessee County Higher Education Profiles 2010" provide basic information with respect to higher education for each county in Tennessee. The 2010 "Profiles" represent the fourth year for this report. In the demographic and enrollment sections, a few changes were made to better meet the needs of policymakers. This document explains those changes. The "Tennessee Higher Education County Profiles 2010" employed the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey (ACS) as the data source to provide current demographic information each Tennessee county. Specifically, the following indicators utilize the ACS: (1) Percent of Adult Population with High School Diploma or Higher (Age 25 and up); (2) Percent of Adult Population with Associates Degree or Higher (Age 25 and up); (3) Percent of Adult Population with Bachelors Degree or Higher (Age 25 and up); (4) Degree Attainment of Younger Adults Relative to Older Adults; (5) Percent of Population in Poverty (18-64 Year Olds); (6) Median Family Income; and (7) Per Capita Personal Income.
