Education Attainment of Young Adults 18-24 by ZIP Code Tabulation Area

impact.stlouisco.com | Last Updated 28 Aug 2016

This dataset includes annual estimates of educational attainment for the population ages 18-24. Through its American Community Survey, the U.S. Census Bureau produces 5-year estimates for most geographies in the U.S, and its territories. The educational attainment estimates reports a percentage of the population who have completed increasing levels of education from less than high school completion to a bachelor’s degree or higher. Estimates are for the highest level of education completed. This dataset is for the Census bureau defined ZIP Code Tabulation Areas (ZCTA). Though roughly formed with the U.S. Postal Service’s ZIP Code areas as a guide, across the nation the ZCTAs do not always conform to the exact boundaries of ZIP Code areas. However, in St. Louis County the boundaries rarely differ.
