Female Preponderance In College Enrollment Continues To Grow

March 9th, 2012

Men continue to fall behind women in college enrollment
The ratio of women to men enrolled in post-secondary education continues to grow, especially at private universities. While women have outnumbered men at higher education institutions since the 1970s, the gap is now larger, with  a female-male ratio of 56.4-43.6. The gap is especially pronounced at private schools (59.3-40.7).
