Florida College Access Network has released a new, interactive data dashboard that allows users to search median annual wages for Florida workers by education and training level.
Research shows that higher levels of education are associated with higher wages, lower levels of unemployment and improved job security.
Higher levels of education are also associated with lower levels of poverty. According to U.S. Census data, Florida adults with no college education are nearly 2.5 times more likely to be living in poverty than Florida adults with some college education.
The wage data featured on the dashboard is provided by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity Bureau of Labor Market Statistics.
