Nearly half of Americans think they need more education to move up in their careers, with younger, non-white and urban residents feeling a greater need for additional skills than their peers, according to the Strada-Gallup Education Consumer Survey of 350,000 people to be released next week.

Between the lines: Whether people believe they need more education to advance their careers reflects the needs of the local labor market where they live. The tighter the job market, the higher the perceived need for more training.

  • In California, for example, 57% of workers without a college degree feel the need for more education. In North Dakota, only 32% feel this need.
  • People are more anxious about needing additional skills if they live in a state where a higher percentage of jobs require a bachelor's degree.
  • There's also a rural-urban divide: 53% of urban residents say they need additional education, compared to 43% of rural residents.

Noteworthy: Those who say they are likely to enroll in additional education within the next 5 years do not expect to do so at traditional post-secondary institutions. Adults without degrees say they'll look to employers, community colleges and trade schools.

Tropical Storm Zeta is expected to strengthen back into a hurricane and bring dangerous storm surge conditions to parts of the northern Gulf Coast on Wednesday, per the National Hurricane Center.

The state of play: Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) requested a pre-landfall Federal Declaration of Emergency in a letter to President Trump on Tuesday, ahead of the storm's expected arrival south of New Orleans.

The big picture: With just seven days before the election, the hackers emulated the FBI and declared on the "About" page that: "this was seized. the world has had enough of the fake-news spreaded [sic] daily by president donald j trump. it is time to allow the world to know truth." Two addresses linked to the cryptocurrency Monero appeared on the site. Trump campaign spokesperson Tim Murtaugh in a statement said no sensitive data had been exposed in the attack.
