An economic forecast predicts the number of new jobs in Hawaii requiring postsecondary education will grow by the year 2018.
The report was released Tuesday by the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce.
Its data show that by 2018, there will be 21,000 more jobs for residents educated beyond high school than there were in 2008.
Meanwhile, the number of jobs for high school graduates and dropouts will increase by about 9,000 during the 10-year period.
Hawaii ranked No. 4 in the predicted share of jobs within the state requiring some college education by 2018, behind only North Dakota, Wyoming and South Dakota.
