What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the percentage of people aged 25 years and over who have earned a bachelor's degree or higher.
Why this is important: 
For many, having a bachelor's degree is the key to a better life. The college experience develops cognitive skills, and allows learning about a wide range of subjects, people, cultures, and communities. Having a degree also opens up career opportunities in a variety of fields, and is often the prerequisite to a higher-paying job. It is estimated that college graduates earn about $1 million more per lifetime than their non-graduate peers.
Technical Note:  The distribution is based on data from 3,143 U.S. counties and county equivalents.
