Black students benefit more from a college degree than other races

A recent study suggests that African-American students in California who obtain a college degree are more likely to reduce the amount years they’ll spend living in poverty compared to students of other races. The California Census Research Data Center crunched data to estimate the revenues and costs of various levels of education in multiple ethnic groups to produce these findings. The Huffington Post reports:

More than any other group in California, African Americans stand to gain the most significant lift out of poverty from earning a college degree, according to a new report.

Taking a deeper look at data from a study it released in April, the nonprofit Campaign for College Opportunity this month released more detailed snapshots of African American [PDF] and Latino [PDF] students, examining how they benefit from varying level of educational attainment in California.

To conduct the analysis, researchers from UC Berkeley and the California Census Research Data Center crunched data to estimate the revenues and costs of various levels of education – both for the state and for individuals. They used data from the U.S. Census, state funding for colleges and universities, average state expenses for social support programs and tax revenues.
