The American Community Survey estimates adults' highest level of schooling by five geographies called Public Use Microdata Areas (PUMAs) (similar to but not the same as wards). More adults living in PUMA “east” (or in Wards 7 and 8) had a high school diploma or GED equivalent as their highest educational level compared to other parts of the city (estimated between 2012 and 2016). More adults living in PUMA “central” and PUMA “west” have bachelor’s degrees or higher (master’s, doctorate, or professional) compared to other parts of the city.
