Data Series–Bachelor Degree Graduation Rates


For the 3 counties that are the Isothermal RPO–McDowell, Polk and Rutherford, there is some variability among graduation rates. McDowell and Rutherford are similar to each other and Polk mirrors both the North Carolina and the US average.

Yesterday’s post highlighted the fact that there had been significant gains in High School graduation rates over the last several years. In the future, this should help to boost college graduation rates, along with the trend towards higher educational attainment among the younger generations.
