How does the educational path of minorities, women or older adults differ from those of other general population individuals in Iowa? What types of jobs do various educational pathways lead to for minorities?
The aim of this project is to develop a series of indicators that identify the post-secondary educational attainment of disproportionately impacted communities in Iowa. The team has investigated data related to educational opportunities, attainment and outcomes of the identified population groups. These data has been cleaned and integrated into a data pipeline. To finally be presented as engaging, unbiased infographics and visuals through a publication series titled Just the Facts.
The team has worked closely with the DHR educational attainment and economic and workforce development teams to collaborate on and share general data resources such as population, demographics and languages spoken that are specifically related to the identified disproportionately impacted populations in Iowa.
