Without A High School Education

This graph explores variation in high school education attainment within selected race and Hispanic origin groups by sex and nativity between regions. Attainment of a high school diploma (or equivalent level of education) is generally very high in the U.S., so this graph focuses on the percentage of the population 25 and older who do not have that level of education. There are notable differences between foreign-born and native population among many groups. For example, in the West, 57 percent of Hispanic foreign-born males had less than a high school education compared with 19 percent of Hispanic native-born males. Nineteen percent of Asian foreign-born females had less than a high school diploma compared with 5 percent of Asian native-born females.
