Measuring Our Progress


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 2022, North Carolina had an estimated 1,608,100 adults 25-44 with a high-quality degree or credential; this is 24,000 individuals below where the state needed to be, at this time, to be on target for the 2 million by 2030 goal.
