Allegan County Educational Attainment Statistics

Understanding the educational attainment of Allegan County’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 estimates on educational attainment in Allegan County. Educational attainment refers to the highest grade level or degree that an individual has completed.

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. This report uses ACS 5-year estimates, rather than single-year periods. The 5-year estimates provide greater geographical granularity but a less granular time period.
