Educational levels

Data about Long Island from the Census Bureau's 2008-2010 American Community Survey for the county and town level on educational attainment. Some towns are not listed because the number of residents surveyed was too small. Also, because this information is based on surveys, there is a different margin of error for each statistic. A complete listing of those margins and of all the data from Long Island, including information from 45 communities with populations of 20,000 or more, is available on this PDF.
