A Stronger Nation Through Higher Education

This report tracks the nation’s progress toward Goal 2025. Simply stated, that goal is this:

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. We hope that having all of this data available in this interactive format will assist you in your efforts to make Goal 2025 a reality.
