NOTE:  Before 1991, 'High School, four 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.'
