The data for this visualization comes from the American Community Survey which is conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. I used the Census Bureau API to pull the 2016 1 year estimate for the percentage of people 25 years old and older with a bachelor’s degree. Once I had gathered the data, I used Tableau to create this visualization.
