Some scary predictions. The Cape, Pioneer Valley and the Berkshires continue to be left behind as other parts of the state’s college trained population grows. And it is a rather large hit given the net result is a drop in college trained population on a statewide basis.
The report predicts that between 2010 and 2030, the number of working-age adults with a bachelor’s degree or higher will fall by 41 percent on Cape Cod; 27 percent in the Pioneer Valley; and 9 percent in the Berkshires.
Meanwhile, the rest of the state will see gains of 1 percent in the southeast region; 5 percent in the northeast region; 9 percent in Central Massachusetts; and 10 percent in both the Metrowest region and in Greater Boston.
