Understanding the educational attainment of Carson City’s population can help officials allocate resources and attract certain businesses and industries to the region. The American Community Survey (ACS), conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, publishes detailed estimated on educational attainment in Carson City. Educational attainment refers to the highest grade level or degree that an individual has completed. (The data shown here only includes the population age 25 and over.)

Unlike the Census—which is an exact count of people and households every ten years—ACS statistics are estimated based on a representative survey sample. For locations with populations under 60,000, the ACS is only available in 5-year estimates, rather than single-year periods. The 5-year estimates provide greater geographical granularity but a less granular time period.
