Here's another infographic to illustrate a fact we've shared before: for over twenty years, Census data has shown that Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders are underrepresented among college graduates.  

This chart shows (in red) the percentage of graduate-age (25-years-and-older) Americans with 4-year-degrees, from 1990 to 2012.  Then, in blue, you see the same figures for Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders.

As you can tell, Pacific Islander graduation rates have been far below the national average for over two decades.
