See the region's best-educated neighborhoods

By Phillip Reese

A higher proportion of Sacramento adults than ever have college degrees, a trend easily seen in several neighborhoods.

About 30 percent of the region's adults 25 and older have at least a bachelor's degree, up from 24 percent in 1990, according to new census figures.

Those with college degrees tend to earn significantly more than those without: Local adults with a bachelor's degree typically earned $2 for every $1 earned by high school graduates with no college experience.

College-educated residents tend to live grouped together in certain neighborhoods.

More than 70 percent of Davis adults have a bachelor's degree. About 55 percent of El Dorado Hills residents and 50 percent of Upper Land Park adults can say the same.

In several of the region's poorest areas, 10 percent or fewer residents have a bachelor's degree.

This map shows the percentage of residents with at least a bachelor's degree by ZIP code throughout the region.
