Young Stark's College Enrollment Rate Outpaces the State

The percentage of young Stark County adults (age 18-24) in college or graduate school has increased nearly 10% since 2005. This exceeds the state's growth of less than 8% for the same age group.
 
Figures released Tuesday by the U.S. Census Bureau as part of its 2008 American Community Survey (ACS) show that for that age group, 33.6% of male Stark County residents and 49.2% of females are currently in college. The total for the entire age group is 41.2%.

Percentage of Young Adults (age 18-24) Enrolled in College
















These numbers do not account for those who have already earned a degree. The ACS three-year estimates* have calculated that an additional 8.3% of the 18-24 population in Stark County already has a bachelor degree or higher.**
