Kyle Walker, director of the Center for Urban Studies at Texas Christian University, has developed a data visualization mapping the levels of educational attainment throughout the United States. The visualization uses color coded dots to indicate education level for individuals over the age of 25. The visualization uses socioeconomic and demographic data from the National Historical Geographic Information System and the American Community Survey.
