Data reflects significant disparities in educational levels across the races and ethnicities.  As these charts show, the percentage of Whites (31.0%) who have a bachelors degree is almost double that of Blacks (16.9%) and significantly higher than Hispanics (26%).  The disparities are even more apparent for those aged 25 or older.  While more than half of the non-Hispanic Whites (51.5%) in this cohort have bachelors degrees, 16.9% of Blacks and 26.4% of Hispanics have bachelors degrees.
