State Profiles of the Adult Education Target Population
US Department of Education, Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education
These state data profiles, Tapping the Potential: Profile of Adult Education Target Population, were created by OCTAE to assist states and advocates in communicating the need for adult education. Population estimates were calculated from the American Community Survey 2009-2011, U.S. Census Bureau. These profiles were constructed to indicate how many adults in each state lack a high school credential or English language proficiency and their corresponding participation rates in the labor force.
