Sister Are Doing It For Themselves: New US Census Bureau Results

The new US Census Bureau Results are in and they support the following: it literally pays to stay in school. They also say that women are performing strongly and steadily.

'About 33 percent of young women 25 to 29 had a bachelor’s degree or more education in 2007, compared with 26 percent of their male counterparts, according to tabulations released today by the U.S. Census Bureau.

The tables also showed that more education continues to pay off in a big way: Adults with advanced degrees earn four times more than those with less than a high school diploma. Workers 18 and older with a master’s, professional or doctoral degree earned an average of $82,320 in 2006, while those with less than a high school diploma earned $20,873.'
