(2) Includes persons with bachelor's, master's, professional, and doctoral degrees.

NOTE: In the summer months, the temporary movement of high school and college students into the not enrolled group increases the educational attainment levels of youth not enrolled in school. Estimates for the above race groups (White, Black or African American, and Asian) do not sum to totals because data are not presented for all races. Persons whose ethnicity is identified as Hispanic or Latino may be of any race. Full time is 35 hours or more per week; part time is less than 35 hours. Updated population controls are introduced annually with the release of January data. Dash indicates no data or data that do not meet publication criteria (values not shown where base is less than 75,000).
