Got a Bachelor’s Degree? … Odds are you’re a woman.

Interesting analysis from The Atlantic: Why Women Will Rule the Economy of the Future

Way back in 1975, more than 1 in 4 guys had a degree; less then 1 in 5 gals did.

Curves crossed in 1995 when the percentage of young women with degrees hit 1 in 4 and the guys’ rate slipped back a bit.

Since then, women have been opening a lead … approaching the 40% mark.

Hmmm.

    Is this available on the web somewhere?
