17.33% where I live. Really not surprised since Oklahoma is Hillbilly, USA.

Where I'm from/grew up: 17.75%
Where I am now: 34.42%

Where I grew up it's 93.5% white but 56% of people with degrees are Asian. is this real life? doesn't even seem mathematically possible.

In both counties I live in Hispanics have very many more degrees than you would think based on their %, yet people still want to have racially based quotas for them. Ror. Blacks actually do too in both counties. Every county I pick shows that white people are the most underrepresented in college degrees based on population.

Actually I think it's stating it by race...that out of all the Asians in the county 56% of them have college degrees.

Well I'm feeling left behind. Close to a forth at least in many places, especially populated places. I just have an associates and some extra college.

Looks like the student loan bubble has taken its toll. If this trend continues, people going into the trades will be making bank.

Asians, I am proud. Hispanics have the lowest with ~12% and blacks have ~17%. I'm interested what it would be like for white people only. (Broad term, I know).

Only 12% of the population is black. Also, they have been hardest hit by the war on drugs and welfare culture. Its not a surprise to see so few of them with degrees.

Just a tad over 10% in my home county. 0% black and asians, 5% hispanics. Strong white neighborhood.

13% in my current county in Idaho, but generally most people move to Boise or Moscow to get their degree.
