Benefits for DC and Nation

According to some analysts, a nation or city cannot prosper in today’s economy if most of its children do not pursue postsecondary education.* States and cities with large numbers of college-educated citizens enjoy greater economic benefits because these citizens:

  • Make more money and pay more federal and state income taxes;
  • Buy more goods and services — and therefore pay more sales taxes;
  • Have lower rates of incarceration;
  • Have higher rates of volunteerism;
  • Have higher voter participation rates; and
  • Require less government support through social service programs.
