These data measure the percentage of adults living in the four geographical areas of Springfield who have attained their bachelor’s degree or higher, as compared to Clark county, the state of Ohio, and the United States.

In 2017:

  • The percentage of adults who have their Bachelor’s degree or higher is  higher in NW Springfield than in the rest of Springfield.*
  • The percentage of adults who have their Bachelor’s degree or higher is  lower in SE Springfield than in the rest of Springfield.*
  • The percentage of adults who have their Bachelor’s degree or higher is lower in Springfield and Clark County than in Ohio or the U.S.*

While the percent difference between SE Springfield (45505) and SW Springfield (45506) appears to be significant, the difference is not significant because of the wide margin of error due to the small sampling size of the areas.

There is an increase in the percentage of adults who have their Bachelor’s degree or higher in Ohio and the U.S. between 2011 and 2017.*

*Denotes a statistically significant finding with 90% confidence, the standard for the ACS.

All data comes from U.S. Census Bureau.

The percentages from each year were retrieved from the American Community Survey (ACS) 2017 5-year Estimates for Education Attainment
