Good morning everybody,

Currently working on this study :

I came across the word "legacy" in this context :

Extract of the table :

Preschool 21,635 Ind.(for individuals)
School 1,164,463 Ind.
College Grad 384,232 Ind.
Post-College 56,266 Ind.
Elderly (70+) 163,101 Ind.
Public Status 18,568 Ind.
Legacy 792 Ind.

I wanted to know what the authors implied by the use of "legacy" and specially to know if it corresponds to dead people who were once famous.
Thanks for your answers

Best Wishes

    Legacy is explained precisely in the linked document - look at the "Notes for Table 8" in Appendix C5.
    All individuals listed in the index to West Virginia: A History by O.K. Rice are counted
    as part of West Virginia’s legacy.
