More Stark County Residents Pursue
Higher Education

At all levels, educators and institutions of learning continue to collaborate to find innovative ways that connect Stark County residents to higher educational opportunities. The most recent release of the U.S. Census Bureau's five-year American Community Survey estimates shows that more Stark County residents are pursuing higher education. The proportion of Stark County's population of 25 years and older who has earned college credit or a higher educational degree[1] increased by 4.6% from 2010 to 2015.



This increase comes at a pivotal time for the state. Not only will having higher levels of education boost a person's earnings over their lifetime, but it will become more important to finding a job. According to the Georgetown University Center on Education and Workforce, 64% of Ohio's workforce will require postsecondary education by 2020.[2]


[1] Including some college credit, associate degree, bachelor's degree and graduate or professional degrees.
