Interesting graphs and charts department
 
Here's a chart with the percentage of adults with college degrees by county.

For fun, try clicking on the Asian button.

New Mexico does very well for blacks -100% in several counties. Just out of interest, how many black people are there in those counties?

Yes, percentages are the big smoke mirror the news media use to report all sorts of things.

Unemployment in Switzerland went up by 100 % last year... from 1 to 2.

Check out Arlington County, VA. You can't swing a cat without hitting a college grad here. The only county I can find that has more grads is right next door in Falls Church. It's ridiculous.

And 6 of the 10 richest counties in the US are surrounding DC.

Seems strange for a place that doesn't actually produce anything.

Since when do you have to produce something to get rich?

Racial/ethnic populations are listed in the info.

Very nice piece of info, useless to me, but, I love this stuff.

Your cat would suffer an aneurysm before contacting a college grad here. 15.19%

It was a rhetorical question....

interesting. lots of educated people in Colorado. Lots of UNeducated people in most of the South.

wonder what the percentage of Cellarites with degrees is?

monster 01-31-2011 10:17 PM

College towns and Ski Havens. only people with degrees can afford to live there.

% in my county is over 50%. My county includes "little Detroit" where graduating high school is a big achievement. But it also includes the university of Michigan and Eastern Michigan Uni. And several small private law schools etc.

It is pretty interesting...Catron County for example, which is desolate to begin with at about 3500 pop., has 12 black residents all of whom have bachelor's degrees.
