Data

Today, at work, I was online looking for data and statistics to update our college planning workshops with. Earlier this year, a colleague shared some data from Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce on post-recession economy projections with our organization. Since I was looking for similar statistics (educational attainment and income), I decided to check out more of their reports. It’s been a while since I’ve done anything really relating to data and numbers and I’d forgotten how much fun data and statistics could be!

Georgetown’s reports were really easy to read and digest. They have very cool graphic representations of the results and their reports are not dry; there’s even a hint of humor in there!

The two reports I ended up using from their website: 

  1. The College Advantage: Weathering The Economic Storm
  2. Help Wanted: Projections of Jobs and Education Requirements Through 2018
