Washington County Educational Attainment Statistics
The American Community Survey (ACS), conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, publishes detailed estimated on educational attainment in the United States. Educational attainment refers to the highest grade level or degree that an individual has completed.
Unlike the Census—which is an exact count of people and households every ten years—ACS statistics are estimated based on a representative survey sample. For locations with populations under 60,000, the ACS is only available in 5-year estimates, rather than single-year periods. The 5-year estimates provide greater geographical granularity but a less granular time period.
