Notes: - Starting in 2001, data are from the expanded CPS sample and were created using population controls based on Census 2000 data. - Begining with data for 1992, a new question results in different categories than for earlier years. - Data shown as 'High School ,4 years' is now collected by the category 'High School Graduate'. - Data shown as 'College 1 to 3 years', is now collected by 'Some College; and two 'Associate degree' categories. Data shown as 'College 4 years or more', is now collected by the categories, 'Bachelor's degree; Master's degree'; 'Doctorate degree'; and 'Professional degree'. Due to the change in question format, median years of schooling cannot be derived. - Total includes persons who did not report on years of school completed.
