For many people, the decision to attend college is largely a monetary one, thanks to the skyrocketing cost of higher education that forces people to take out student loans.
The good news among our respondents is 27% said they graduated college with no student loan debt. That’s compared to 14% who said they owed $10,000 or less, 13% who owe $20,000 to $30,000, 12% who owe $10,000 to $20,000, and 4% who owe a staggering $100,000 or more.
Forty-three percent of people surveyed are still paying student loans.
