Postsecondary Effects on Voting

Description

This data represents the percentage of the population in a locality that is enrolled in a post-secondary school, the percentage of the population that is registered to vote, and the percentage of the population that actually voted that year. This data allows users to identify if the number of postsecondary enrollments has an effect on voter numbers.
*Note: Voting numbers are based on ballot counts for all elections taking place only in November for that year.
