What is this Indicator?
This indicator measures the percentage of infants born to mothers with less than 12 years of education.
This value refers to infants born to mothers who did not graduate from high school.
Why this is important: 
Parents' educational attainment has a profound impact on the condition of families. There is a strong relationship between parents' educational attainment and poverty, literacy, and educational attainment rates for children. Education is directly related to higher earnings and greater job security. In addition, higher educational attainment is associated with better neighborhoods and schools, lower divorce rates and better overall health.
Technical Note:  The distribution is based on data from 254 Texas counties.
Percentages based on fewer than 20 events are considered unreliable and should be interpreted with caution. Please consult the source for number of events.
