NOTE: Before 1991 "High School, 4 years" included those with less than one
year of college; beginning in 1991, people with less than one year of college
are included in the "Some College, No Degree" category.  The category "College,
 1 to 3 years" used before 1991 is a combination of the new categories "Some 
College, No Degree" and "Associate degree."
