Just got off a conference call regarding some higher-ed results from the U.S. Census.
I still have to download and go through the results to see what kind of state-by-state results it has, but for now I’ll give you the chart above. (Don’t expect any time comparisons, though. I was told this was the first time a lot of this data was collected.)
I find the alignment of the lightest band of states interesting.
