Note: Educational attainment not reported for 16-24 year olds in this table because over 50% of this age group are full-time students. Therefore, reporting educational attainment for this group would combine the 24 year olds who dropped out of school in the tenth grade with the 16 year old tenth graders—not a meaningful aggregation.
