This report tracks the nation’s progress toward what we at Lumina Foundation call the Big Goal. Simply stated, that goal is this:
By 2025, 60 percent of Americans will hold a high-quality postsecondary degree or credential.
“Stronger Nation” offers detailed data arrays that describe degree attainment at the national, state and county levels. Also this year, the report provides degree-attainment data for each of the nation’s 100 most populous metropolitan areas. We hope that having all of this data available in this interactive format will assist you in your efforts to make the Big Goal a reality.
