January 2019. Based on ACS 2017 estimates, the U.S. percent college graduates was 30.9 percent (of the population ages 25 and over) while states ranged from 0.0% (Lost Hills ESD, CA -- among districts having 1,000 or more population) to 91.1% (Kennilworth School District, IL). See item/column S067 in the interactive table below to view, rank, compare, analyze states based on this measure in context of related social characteristics. These data uniquely provide insights into many of the most important social characteristics for all school districts in the U.S. See about how to view/rank/compare districts below in this section. Create comparative analysis profiles for districts of interest.

Approximately 600 subject matter items from the American Community Survey ACS 2017 database (released December 2018) are included in these sections:
  • General Demographics
  • Social Characteristics -- this section
  • Economic Characteristics
  • Housing Characteristics

Visual Analysis of Patterns of Educational Attainment by School District
The following map shows patterns of percent population ages 25 years and over who are college graduates by school district in the San Antonio, TX MSA (bold brown boundary) area based on the ACS 2017 5-year estimates. Create a similar map for any area in the U.S. and/or variations of this view using the associated GIS project with the CV XE GIS software. Add your own data.

Analytzing the School & School District Community
ProximityOne works with schools, school districts and K-12 education stakeholders to develop, integrate and analyze demographic-economic data for planning, evaluation and policy analysis. Use our custom estimates and projections to better understand trends, what might change when and where -- and how it might impact you.

Using the Interactive Table
Use the interactive table below to view, query, rank, compare social characteristics of the population for these areas. The scroll box shown below lists each of the subject matter items available for each area via the ranking table. In the subject matter items scrollbox, subject matter items are organized into to mini-tables with related items. The number at the left of the subject matter item is also used as the short name for the subject matter item in the column header in the ranking table.

About these Demographic-Economic Data
Data used in this section are estimates developed from the American Community Survey (ACS2017). These data differ from administratively reported data (enrollment, etc.).

Data are for the total resident population in the district. Data are not shown separately for charter schools as charter schools have no defined boundaries. If a charter school located in district X has students from district Y, attributes of those students and households are shown in data for district Y.

The importance of understanding the demographic-economic make-up and trends can hardly be overstated. Community and educational challenges and opportunities are shaped by demographic-economic dynamics. Only by knowing "where we are" can we develop the most effective plans for improvement.

The importance of understanding the demographic-economic make-up and trends can hardly be overstated. Community and educational challenges and opportunities are shaped by demographic-economic dynamics. Only by knowing "where we are" can we develop the most effective plans for improvement.

The American Community Survey provides "richer" demographic-economic characteristics for national scope wide-ranging geographic areas. While Census 2010 provides data similar to those items in the General Demographics section, only ACS sourced data provide details on topics such as income and poverty, labor force and employment, housing value and costs, educational participation and attainment, language spoken at home, among many related items. The approximate 600 items accessible via the dataset are supplemented by a wide range of additional subject matter. These data are updated annually in December of each year for each/all political/statistical areas, including census tracts, ZIP code areas and block groups..
