The chart shows the educational achievements of homeless people in America (divided into those in families and single

homeless people) compared to those of all US adults, for the year 1997. The worst educational attainment was for homeless people in families (53% with less than a high-school diploma), while the best results were for all US adults (45% or more with a high-school diploma). Single homeless people were more successful than those in families: the percentage of single homeless without a high-school diploma was much lower than for homeless people in families (37% compared to 53%), while the percentage having only high-school diplomas was much higher (36% compared to 21%). Having said this, similar percentages of homeless people in families and single homeless people had more than a high-school diploma: 27% and 28% respectively. In sum, it is clear that homeless people had lower educational attainments than US adults as a whole, and that homeless people in families had worse levels of achievement than single homeless.
