Data Matters: College Attainment

By AACC Staff

The number of Americans who hold a high-quality credential beyond a high school diploma is slowly increasing, according to Lumina Foundation data.

The Lumina Foundation recently released A Stronger Nation, its annual tracking of the nation’s progress toward meeting Goal 2025, the foundation’s aspiration that 60 percent of Americans will hold a degree, certificate or other high-quality postsecondary credential by 2025. This year, for the first time, Lumina has included the percentage of Americans who earned high-quality certificates. Check out the infographic below for that data and more.
