Marriage and College

Throughout the 20th century, college-educated Americans were less likely to be married by age 30 than Americans without a college degree. That pattern has now reversed, according to a new report by the Pew Social & Demographic Trends project of the Pew Research Center.

The report is based on data from the 1950 to 2000 Decennial Censuses and the Census Bureau’s 2008 American Community Survey.
