Stats and Facts: BLS – For the College Educated: Increasing Employment

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on September 15, 2010

Spotlight on Statistics: Back to College – “All of the increase in employment over the past two decades has been among workers who have taken at least some college classes or who have associate or bachelor’s degrees — and mostly among workers with bachelor’s degrees. The number of these college-educated workers has increased almost every year. Over the 1992–2009 period, the number of college-educated workers increased from 27 million to 44 million. In contrast, the number of employed people with only a high school diploma or without a high school diploma has remained steady or decreased.”
