Percent of Population in College by Age

Currently about 50% of people age 18-21 are in college.   

I got data from the CPS for School Enrollment of the population as of Oct. 2011.   The data covers both undergrad and graduate.

Here it is broken down by age group :

You can't see it in the chart but surprisingly 0.2% of the 14-15 year olds are in college.   I suspect theres more genius kids out there than I realized or its just kids enrolled in a joint community college deal through their high school.

Theres a notable difference in the college enrollment rates between men and women.   Here is how it looks side by side:

About 45% of 18-21 year old men are in college and around 55% of women.
