Complete Health Indicator Report of New Mexico Population - Education, No High School Diploma

Definition

The percentage of adults age 25 years and older with no high school diploma (including equivalency).

Numerator

Estimated population age 25 years and older with no high school diploma (including equivalency) or higher degree.

Denominator

Total population age 25 years and older.

Why Is This Important?

A good education leads to good health in several ways. First, the more schooling people have, the more money they earn which enables them to purchase better housing in safer neighborhoods, healthier food, better medical care and health insurance, and more education. Each of these factors is associated with improved health. Each one allows individuals to move up the occupational and income ladder, giving them more prestige and power, both of which are associated with better health. High school completion is also the gateway into college, which offers even greater benefits than high school alone. Second, education facilitates healthier behavior choices by offering learners access to health information and tools to acquire help and resources, such as smoking cessation programs. Third, education helps people to acquire social support, strengthen social networks, and mitigate social stressors. The more education people have the more social support they have. Education helps people to gain a sense of control over their lives, an outcome associated with better health.

Other Objectives

Related Indicators

Relevant Population Characteristics

Students who come from low-income families, who are the children of single, young, unemployed mothers, or who have experienced high degrees of family stress are more likely than other students to drop out of school. Of those characteristics, low socioeconomic status has been shown to bear the strongest relationship to students' tendency to drop out.
