6.  Jay County Archival Indicators of Risk

6.20 Adults without a High School Diploma (2002, estimates)

Lack of education places a person at extreme disadvantage in many areas of life, including health and income potential.  CSAP calculates this risk factor as the percent of persons aged 25 and older who have reached 9th-12th grades but without obtaining a high school diploma.  As of 2002, 1,374 Jay County residents over the age of 25 had not completed 9th grade; and another 2,523 had attended some high school classes but had not earned a high school diploma.  The following table shows the rate for Jay County compared with the state and the nation.
