"The 2002 ACS survey, which looked at graduate-degree attainment for the 25-and-over population, found some of the highest levels of graduate and professional degrees in Massachusetts (14.5 percent), Maryland (14.1 percent), Connecticut (13.7 percent), Virginia (12.9 percent), New York (12.6 percent) and Vermont (12.3 percent). West of the Mississippi River, Colorado and New Mexico stood out with graduate degree rates of 11.5 percent and 11.0 percent, respectively. Graduate and professional degrees include master's, law, medical and doctorate degrees.... The findings are based on responses from a sample of 742,000 households."
