- This article looks at some statistics on college graduation. One of the info graphs showed how it was becoming more difficult for new college graduates to find good jobs compared to the past. The article also found that private institutions had higher graduation rate compared to public ones. One of the most interesting info graphs to me was the one that reflected the growing income gap between people with and without a college degree. I thought this article was appealing because I am currently a senior and will hopefully be graduating in May. This is something I am going to be affected by and I think it is helpful to be aware of those statistics.
- The data in this article consists of secondary data retrieved from a previous Pew Research report, U.S. Census Bureau, U.S. labor Statistics and a report from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
- One question I have about this data is why do most grads think college is worth it? I think the debt is problematic and I think the opposite.
