Californians who are Asian Indian or Taiwanese are among the most highly educated in the state, recently released census data shows.
Among both groups, about 7 out of 10 people ages 25 and older hold at least a bachelor's degree. On average, 3 out of 10 Californians have earned a bachelor's degree or higher.
The findings come from the 2006-2010 American Community Survey, which includes detailed estimates of social, economic and housing characteristics for 392 racial, tribal, Hispanic origin and ancestry groups.
