By 2025, 60% of Americans will hold a high-quality college degree, certificate or other postsecondary credential.

“Stronger Nation” offers detailed data arrays that describe degree attainment at the national, state and county levels. The report also provides degree-attainment data for each of the nation’s 100 most populous metropolitan regions.
