Finally, some heartening news on college completion-
From 2000 to 2010, the percentage of people over the age of 25 with at least a bachelor’s degree rose from 26 percent to 30 percent. Women in that age group were slightly more likely than men to have a degree—86.7 percent compared with 86.6 percent.
Those statistics come from a report, “Educational Attainment in the United States: 2010,” that the bureau released on Tuesday. The report was compiled from a series of surveys of more than 100,000 households.
