American Higher Education is Changing Fast: New Statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau

American Higher Education

Here are some trends you will want to know about . . .

  • For the first time ever, more than 30% of Americans aged 25+ have earned a bachelor’s degree. That’s a big change. Back in 1998, fewer than 25% of Americans older than age 25 did.
  • Hispanic-Americans are earning college degrees at a remarkably high rate. Between 2001 and 2011, the number of Hispanics who hold a bachelor's or a higher degree increased from 2.1 million to 3.8 million. That’s a jump of 80%.
  • College grads are much more likely to be employed. The unemployment rate for high school dropouts peaked in February 2010, hitting 17.9%. In that same month, unemployment for Americans with bachelor's degrees was only 5.9%.
  • Americans over age 60 are extremely likely to have college degrees. According to the Census Bureau, 26% of Americans age 60 and older have bachelor's degrees. That’s an increase of 13% since 1992, and represents the highest percentage of educated older Americans ever.
