9% of us born did not graduate And 27% of foreign born did not graduate

The graph further breaks down into 7 birth places the immigrants came from and their individual education alone. Since I have already did the math I will use this as an example

Mexico born 54% didn’t graduate

Someone told me I did not know how to read a map as they are an engineer and work with statistics everyday. Because I read the map as if there were just as many foreign born immigrants as there were US born the percentages would be different.

US BORN 9%,

MEXICO BORN 54%

If you look at the chart you would say there is a 45% difference in how many Mexicans graduate versus Americans. I say that is false. Since the number they calculated the percentages from are not the same.

Say there is 300,000,000 US BORN

and

300,000 Mexican born

There is no way to calculate the percent of how many Mexicans would not graduate if there were 300,000,000. If there is I couldn’t find it.

I ended up finding the percent difference which ended up being 5%

Does that mean there is only a 5% difference in how many US-MEXICO BORN graduate? If so, could you calculate the number of mexico born who wouldn’t graduate if they were the same as US BORN?

Is there any other way to come to a more accurate conclusion of the difference in the two?

How does someone else read this kind of graph?

To say 54 percent of Mexicans didn’t finish high school is insinuating that the more that come over will keep the results the same? I don’t see how

Also I found the percent difference by Finding the 9% of US born .09x300,000,000=27,000,000

The Mexico born .57x300,000=171,000

27,000,000-171,000=269,829,000

27,000,000+171,000=27,171,000

27,171,000/2=13,585,500

13,585,500/269,829,000=.05

5%

I don’t know if the percent difference is accurate because again the percentages weren’t derived from the same number. Also if it is correct, does that imply the difference between how many did not graduate is alone 5%. Stating there isn’t much of a difference between how many do not graduate?

If you were to say welfare is used primarily by those who do not graduate, I’m trying to prove that you cannot say more immigrants = more welfare. Especially if the same amount do graduate and pay into taxes, would it not cancel itself out. Not costing Americans anymore money?

My whole view was if their are less foreign born population than US born than the more there were the percentages would change, possibly with even less percentage not graduating.
