Educational Attainment: A Data-Driven Learning Guide Go to Resource

Summary

Educational attainment is a key concept for social scientists interested in social inequality, social mobility, and class. Educational attainment is closely related to occupation and income, with many better-paying jobs requiring a college degree or other advanced study. Thus, group differences in educational attainment are usually indicative of group differences in other areas of social life.

The goal of this module is to explore the relationship between demographic characteristics and educational attainment. Frequencies and comparison of means will be used.
