That to me doesn't make any sense. It said that in 2006 (I couldn't get the 2007 table to open) only 27% of Americans had a bachelors degree or higher. Working in academia it is hard for me to imagine that. I really don't mean to sound like an "elitist snob" I just did not realize the number was that low! They must all live here! How many people on here do NOT have a bachelors degree? Does anyone know of any figures that contest this data?
