Random Samplings: Immigrant Families and Educational Attainment
How do the foreign born and their children influence educational attainment statistics? For the first time in U.S. history, one-third (33.4 percent) of the population aged 25 and older are college graduates with bachelor's or higher degrees. This is part of a continuing trend toward higher rates of bachelor's degree and advanced (master's, professional, and doctoral) degree attainment. However, most people do not know that about one-quarter (25 percent) of the population age 25 and older are either foreign born, or have at least one foreign-born parent. Data from the Current Population Survey (CPS) shows that, on average, rates of college completion are not very different between the foreign born and native born.

Future Work: What, Where, and Why

The growth industries and professions of the future will shape our cities in very different ways to the industries and professions that shaped our cities in the past. There are profound implications for urban planning and property, if we're ready for them. The biggest growth industry for coming years and for the foreseeable future, the official forecasts all seem to agree on, will be in health care and social assistance. This includes professions such as surgeons, general practitioners, nurses, child care, aged care, various therapies and counselors, dental, and even laundry workers, cleaners and administrative support roles.  

40th Annual Report on the Health of the Nation Features Long-Term Trends in Health and Health Care Delivery in the United States
CDC today released Health, United States, 2016, the 40th annual report on the health of the nation from the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) to the President and Congress. This year's report features a Chartbook on Long-Term Trends in health and health care delivery over the past 40 years. From declines in cigarette smoking and increases in prescription drug use to changes in expenditures for hospitals and home health care, the annual report also explores population changes that have affected patterns of disease, as well as health care access and utilization since 1975.  The 27 charts and 114 tables present birth rates and infant mortality, life expectancy and leading causes of death, health risk behaviors, health care utilization and insurance coverage, and health expenditures.
