The above plot is a pyramid plot. This pyramid plot is showing the percent of adults ages 25 and over that have reached a certain level of education in the state of Minnesota. This plot shows that men and women, in Minnesota, have almost exactly the same distribution of education attainment. The plot shows us that most adults ages 25 and over, both men and women, have attained either a high school diploma or a four-year bachelorŐs degree in something. The next highest percentage, for both men and women, is to have some college, more than 1 year, with no college degree.
