11 Median Household income by State vs. High School Graduation Rates by State (2000 census) State Med. H.I G.R.Diff. N.J.110 Mass Calif Minn.1183 Nev N.Y

12 Evaluation Midwest & New England- lower levels of differences Midwest & New England- lower levels of differences Why? -education being more equally distributed Metro areas (N.Y., Mass., Calif., Mich., Penn.)- higher levels of difference Metro areas (N.Y., Mass., Calif., Mich., Penn.)- higher levels of difference Why? -inner city households have more children -wealthy, suburban households have fewer children (higher rates of children living in poverty) -wealthy, suburban households have fewer children (higher rates of children living in poverty) By looking at SES vs. academic performance from a state by state perspective, virtually no correlation exists.
