PUBLIC OPINION ON EDUCATION

myFutureNC collaborated with Gallup to conduct a statewide household mail survey of North Carolina residents during August 2018. The study measured residents’ opinions at each level of education available in the state, including early childhood education, K12 schools, two-year community colleges and four-year public and private colleges and universities.

DATA BRIEFS

Carolina Demography, led by Dr. Rebecca Tippett, have compiled a series of four data briefs using the National Student Clearinghouse data to better understand key transition points and the college-going behaviors of North Carolina public high school graduates from 2009-2016.
  1. Access: How many students are going to college? 
  2. Persistence: How many students are still enrolled in postsecondary after their first year?
  3. Success: How many students persist in the postsecondary enrollments to successfully complete a college degree or credential?
  4. Postsecondary Pathways and Barriers to Opportunity: What are the most common pathways through postsecondary? What are the potential barriers to success suggested by pathways that end in stopout or dropout?
