College Degrees (1940-2009)

In: Employment History Interactive Maps

An interactive map of adults with college degrees. Filter by race or income or drill down to your county.  I’m not sure if it’s more surprising that it went from 4.6% to 27.5%, or that we’re only at 27.5% today. How long do you suppose before someone puts this next to a red/blue state map? (via Sociological Images)

1940 vs 2009:

Aside from politics, I wouldn’t mind seeing the map against a population density by county. My question would be… are individuals in densely populated counties have higher education than those in rural areas?
