Measuring Our Progress


DRIVING TOWARD 2 MILLION BY 2030

North Carolina faces a growing need for talent. More people must earn degrees, workforce certificates, and other high-quality credentials. myFutureNC tracks the postsecondary attainment of North Carolinians ages 25-44, as well as performance from Pre-K to college and career.

As of 2019, North Carolina had an estimated 1,450,249 adults 25-44 with a high-quality degree or credential; this is 44,000 below where the state needed to be, at this time, to be on target to the 2 million by 2030 goal.
