There are 66,000 adults in the Fayetteville area who have earned a four-year college or postgraduate degree, according to research from Nielsen. A study from the Federal Reserve indicates that these educated consumers have been least affected by the economic consequences of the pandemic.

"While the labor market disruptions have affected workers in a wide set of industries and occupations, those without a college degree have experienced the most severe impact," say Mary C. Daly, Shelby R. Buckman, and Lily M. Seitelman authors of The Unequal Impact of COVID-19 in the Economic Letter published by the Federal Reserve of San Francisco.

There are, according to Nielsen, 65,496 college graduates living in the Fayetteville area. In total, this population generates $5.1 billion in annual take-home pay. To tap into a similar pool of spending power, a marketer would need to reach 113,526 consumers who did not go beyond high school.
