Perhaps you've heard that a college degree just isn't worth it
anymore. That's not true according to the latest statistics. Check
out a Huffington Post article by Joseph Pisani titled: "Yes, A College Degree Still Worth It..."
Based on a report released in June by
the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, two economists used federal
data to show that a person with a bachelor's degree can expect to
earn about $1.2 million more, from ages 22 to 64, than someone with
just a high school diploma. They also earn significantly more than
what a person with just an associate's degree would earn over that
The report said that between 1970 and 2013, those with a
four-year bachelor's degree earned an average of about $64,500 per
year, while those with a two-year associate's degree earned about
$50,000 per year and those with only a high school diploma earned
$41,000 per year.
