Alaska's statewide postsecondary attainment goal is for 65% of working-age Alaskans to have a postsecondary credential by the year 2025. The Alaska Postsecondary Access and Completion Network (the Network), a non-profit group of educators, industry, and other higher education stakeholders, adopted the attainment goal in 2014 to increase Alaska residents' readiness for projected job openings requiring postsecondary credentials. The Network defines postsecondary credentials to include college degrees, certificates, licenses, and endorsements. However, the most accurate data available from the US Census Bureau American Community Survey describes only seven postsecondary education attainment levels, including "Some college, but less than one year," "One or more years of college credit, no degree," combined in this brief as residents with "some college" experience. Despite a lack of data on certificates and other non-degree credentials, education stakeholders may still be interested to learn more about these "some college" Alaska residents. This research brief uses the American Community Survey 2017 (1-Year Estimates) data to describe the demographics and careers of these residents and to compare them to those of residents with a college degree.
