College Enrollment Declines for Past Two Years

According to this September 24 press release from the Census Bureau: “College enrollment declined by close to half a million (463,000) between 2012 and 2013, marking the second year in a row that a drop of this magnitude has occurred. The cumulative two-year drop of 930,000 was larger than any college enrollment drop before the recent recession, according to U.S. Census Bureau statistics from the Current Population Survey released today.” A graph shows trends from 2006 t0 2013 and after increasing substantially, the figures start a downward turn in 2012.
