6 The Impact of Changing Demographics on Educational Attainment and Personal Income (2000 to 2020) Projected changes in educational attainment and personal income per capita are based on the US Census Bureau s population projections by age and race/ethnicity and 2000 educational attainment and personal income data by age and race/ethnicity. The analyses are designed to help answer the following question: Given current disparities in educational attainment and personal income by age and race/ethnicity, how will the changing demographics in my state impact the overall educational attainment and personal income of the adult population?

8 The Impact of State Higher Education Inequality Summary Relative to the size of its population, is the fastest-growing state in the U.S. All race/ethnic groups are growing substantially with s and Hispanics accounting for the majority of recent growth. Hispanics are expected to account for the majority of future growth nearly doubling in numbers from 2000 to The workforce has far fewer college degrees than the nation as a whole and substantially less than the most educated states. A high percentage of 25 to 64 year olds (18%) have less than a high school education and 22 percent of the younger population ages 25 to 34 have less than a high school diploma (ranked 48th among all states in the U.S.). have made progress in educational attainment relative to males but sizable disparities still exist among racial/ethnic populations. Nineteen percent of African- Americans and only nine percent of Hispanics have attained college degrees compared to 30 percent of s. The Hispanic population in is less educated than Hispanics in any other state and, unlike other race/ethnic populations, their educational attainment has sharply declined in the past two decades. Hispanic males are the least-educated segment of the population. The educational gaps between s and minority populations is widening not closing. No race/ethnic populations in exceed the most educated countries in the percentage of adults (ages 25 to 34) with a bachelor s degree or higher or all college degrees (associate and higher) which is an important consideration in an increasingly global economy. s personal income per capita has fallen sharply from 127 percent of the U.S. average in 1960 to about the national average in The education system in (from high school to college completion) fails to retain Hispanics at nearly the rate of s and Asians. African-Americans also fall out at higher rates. These race/ethnic disparities are also evident in the graduation rates of college students at the baccalaureate level. Unless these inequities are addressed, current disparities in educational attainment and the population projections by race/ethnicity indicate that will lose ground in the percentage of its workforce that is college-educated. The most substantial growth will occur in the less than high school and high school only populations. s personal income per capita will remain at about the national average which will continue to impact the tax base of and its ability to provide services to its citizens namely higher education.
