Postsecondary credential

From 2008 to 2012, 58 percent of Minnesota 25- to 44-year-olds had received a postsecondary certificate or degree. As part of the Higher Education Attainment Goal in Minnesota Statute 135A.011, Minnesota is working to increase this number to 70 percent by 2025.

Since 2006 the rate of adults 25 to 44 with an Associate's degree or higher has steadily increased, although gaps of more than 70 percentage points exist by detailed race/ethnicity. From 2008 to 2012, just 14% of Minnesotan American Indians had an Associate's degree compared to 90% of Asian Indians.
