California once again ranked Number 1 among the 50 states for the percentage of its residents 25 and older who have never completed ninth grade and 50th for the percentage who have at least graduated from high school, according to new five-year estimates (2014-2018) released recently by the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey.

California, as CNSNews.com reported last year, also ranked No. 1 for the percentage who never completed ninth grade and Number 50 for the percentage who had graduated from high school in the five-year estimates (2013-2017) the Census Bureau released in December 2018.

In California, according to the new five-year estimate, 2,471,189 residents 25 and older had never completed ninth grade.

That equaled 9.4 percent of the state’s total 2018 population of residents 25 and older.

Texas ranked second with 8.5 percent (1,506,111) of its 25-and-older population having never completed ninth grade.

New York ranked third with 6.3 percent (857,177) of its 25-and-oder population having never completed ninth grade.

New Mexico ranked fourth with 6.2 percent (86,723) of its 25-and-older population having never completed ninth grade.
