Education Statistics > Postsecondary > Degrees Awarded > Bachelors (most recent) by state

DEFINITION: This is the number of bachelors' degrees awarded. A baccalaureate or equivalent degree, as determined by the Secretary, U.S. Department of Education, is an award that normally requires at least 4 but not more than 5 years of full-time equivalent college-level work. This includes all bachelor's degrees conferred in a 5-year cooperative (work-study) program. A cooperative plan provides for alternate class attendance and employment in business, industry, or government; thus, it allows students to combine actual work experience with their college studies. Also includes bachelor's degrees in which the normal 4 years of work are completed in 3 years.

COMMENTARY     

Edwin Pacheco
17th July 2011
And I hope to become one of the individuals that add to the statistics of post secondary education for the state of Texas

Please clarify what this statistic is measuring over what period. The definition says "This is the number of bachelors' degrees awarded." But over what period is this?
e.g., the last 5 years?

It is very confusing and needs clarify of definition.
Please advise.
