Putnam County underperformed in comparison to the rest of Tennessee in terms of higher education achievement in 2012. The United States Census Bureau found that 21.7 percent of Putnam County residents aged 25 years and older had attained a bachelor's degree compared to 23.5 percent for Tennessee as a whole.

The poverty rate in Putnam County was 24.1 percent compared to 17.3 percent for the entire state.
Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent. This Ballotpedia page provides a more detailed explanation of how the Census Bureau handles race and ethnicity in its surveys.
