Publication date:

This one-pager highlights key findings in higher education from the Status of Women by County: Poverty & Opportunity report commissioned by FPN's Florida Women's Funding Alliance. 

Florida ranks in the bottom third of the nation for the percent of women with a bachelor’s degree or higher. In more than half of Florida counties (34 of the 67), the share of women aged 25 and older who have earned a bachelor’s degree or higher is less than 20 percent. In 32 counties, the share of women with at least a bachelor’s degree is larger than the share of similarly educated men.
