American women born in the early 1980s are 33 percent more likely to have earned a college degree by the time they reach 27 years of agethan their male contemporaries, according to the results of a longitudinal study published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The study also showed that women in that age group who started college were more likely to have completed it.
“Thirty-two percent of women had earned a bachelor’s degree, compared with 24 percent of men,” said the BLS. The 32 percent of women with college degrees was 8 points–or 33.3 percent–more than the 24 percent of men.
