Educational Attainment in Hawaii

From DBEDT, January, 2016

Overview: This brief presents an overview of educational attainment in Hawaii by major demographic characteristics and its impact on a person’s earnings and economic activities. All figures presented in this brief were based on the 2010-2014 American Community Survey (ACS) 5-year estimates.

Educational attainment is the highest level of education that a person has achieved. According to the 2010-2014 ACS 5-year estimates, Hawaii had more educated people than the national average. 62.6 percent of population aged 25 and over in Hawaii had at least some college education, 4.2 percentage points higher than the national average.

Among the population aged 25 and over, 9.3 percent had education less than a high school diploma in Hawaii while its national counterpart was 13.6 percent.
