One in 5 Undergraduates Worked Full Time in 2011, Census Bureau Says

Twenty percent of undergraduate students worked full time all year in 2011, and 52 percent worked less than that, according to a report released on Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau. The report is one of three American Community Survey briefs that discuss changes in the work force; the other two examine the employment of individuals 65 and over, and look at changes in self-employment. The first report also says that nearly half of graduate students worked full time, and that a significant majority of them—82 percent—worked at least part time.
