College Credits

Posted by | December 25, 2011 | WashPark Information | No Comments

Washington Park has a concentrated population with some of the best rates of higher level of education in the state. According to City-Data.com, the WashPark education demographics are higher than in the rest of the state for: Bachelor’s degrees, Master’s degrees, Profess. school degrees and Doctorate degrees.

Washington Park is a well educated part of Denver with most residents completing accredited online degrees prior to moving in.  That then relates to a higher income bracket for most residents also.  There is a down-side, though, home prices tend to stay a bit better here than the rest of the state…

While the rates are lower for: Less than high school, High school or equiv., Less than 1 year of college, 1 or more years of college and Associate degree, the study shows that WashPark has a higher rate of enrollment for College undergrad and Graduate or professional school.

The next interesting piece is the huge number of people working for a “private company” over anything else.  It does follow the state averages pretty well, and seems pretty typical.  I do like seeing that the Washington Park area of Denver has a higher self-employment rate than the rest of the state.  Having been self-employed in that area, I find that it’s a great place to be and work for yourself!
