The degree attainment profiles serve as a convenient way for education stakeholders and community members to gain a clearer sense of where they stand in efforts to meet tomorrow’s workforce needs with increased postsecondary opportunities.
The profiles feature five-year degree attainment trends, average wages by education/training level, and a summary of state and county-level attainment data. FCAN has also developed degree attainment profiles for each of the state’s local college access networks (LCANs), which now represent 78% of the Florida’s population. These regional networks are working collaboratively to increase college and career readiness, access, and attainment for students in their communities.
Postsecondary attainment is commonly linked to increased income and employment outcomes for workers, as well as a number of positive health-related behaviors and civic participation. Additionally, postsecondary attainment is used by communities and regions to attract industries with high-wage jobs that require education and training beyond high school.
