76.8% of Kentucky’s state legislature has at least a bachelor’s degree. That’s slightly higher than the national figure of 74.7%. And it’s significantly higher than the 20% of Kentucky residents who have at least a bachelor’s degree.
To me, the interesting question is whether or not it’s a “good” thing that our state legislature is, on average, disproportionately much more educated than the population that they’ve been elected to represent.
Incidentally, 4 of Kentucky’s 138 state legislators (nearly 3%) are graduates of Centre College.
