A greater proportion of Asian Americans hold college degrees than do members of any other ethnic group in the United States, according to an American Community Survey report released on Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau. About half of all people over the age of 25 who identified themselves as Asian had attained at least a bachelor’s degree, according to the report. The rate for the total U.S. population was 28 percent. The report is part of a larger release of American Community Survey data on hundreds of racial, tribal, and ancestry groups. Other census data released this year has shown strong gains in degree attainment by minority groups in the last 10 years.
What a great demographic!
