Changing Demographics Impacts on Educational Attainment An Example of Impacts Under the Following Assumptions Past High School Students High School Graduation Rate % Graduating High School % HS Graduates Obtaining College Degree % College Graduates of All High School Students % of All HS Students not Graduating High School Hispanic10%50%5.00%15%0.75%5.00% NH Minority10%60%6.00%25%1.50%4.00% White NH80% 64.00%40%25.60%16.00% Total100% 76.00% 27.85%25.00% Future (using California's current student ratios) Hispanic45%50%22.50%15%3.38%22.50% NH Minority22%60%13.20%25%3.30%8.80% White NH33%80%26.40%40%10.56%6.60% Total100% 62.10% 17.24%37.90% In this scenario * 38% decrease in percent graduating from college * 52% increase in percent of students not graduating high school
Educational Attainment vs. Earnings High school dropouts on average earn $12,000 per year, half of a high school graduate, and one third of those with more than a high school degree They will earn ~$260,000 less than a high school graduate and pay $60,000 less in taxes over a lifetime Source: Cecilia Rouse, NBER - The Labor Market Consequences of an Inadequate Education

Major Demographic Impacts Racial/ethnic composition of public school students changing rapidly in Oregon Minority population generally less educated with lower earnings capacity White educated Baby Boomers begin retiring in 2010 Work force growth will mostly come from minority population - primarily Hispanic Federal and state revenue will be negatively impacted unless minority earnings increase Ratio of workers to retired persons is decreasing - putting pressure on retirement plan funding
Demographic Conclusions U.S./Oregon is rapidly changing from primarily a nation of white non-Hispanic persons to a racially and ethnically diverse population Hispanic/Latino and Asian populations are the fastest growing; white only the slowest Hispanic/Latino population increases now account for half of U.S. population growth Planning and policy decisions in education, housing, social services, etc. should reflect these patterns of growth
