Educational Attainment in the United States: 2007

U.S. Census Bureau

Thirty-three percent of 26- to 29-year-old women have a bachelor’s degree – an increase of 6 percentage points since 2006 – compared with an unchanged rate of just 26 percent for men of the same age range, according to this series of tables based on U.S. Census data. All men age 25 and older are still more likely than women of the same age to hold at least a bachelor’s degree (30 percent to 28 percent), but the gap is narrowing. The data also show that workers age 18 and older who had advanced degrees averaged $82,320 in income in 2006, compared with $20,873 earned by those with less than a high school diploma.
