Survey Reveals
G rttdutaesHave
Least Divorces
A typical college graduate leaves
school, at the age o 22, marries quick-
ly, and is less likely to seek a divorce
than other persons, a survey of col-
lege alumni conducted recently by
the educational bureau of the De-
partment of the Interior reveals.
More than half the men and wom-
en alumni live in metropolitan cities
of 100,000 population or more, and
many of them live with relatives dur-
ing their first one or two years out of
college, the study says.
It was directed by Dr. Walter J.
Greenleaf, of the Department of In-
terior, and was conducted through
cooperation by 31 universities. It was
financed by relief funds.
The survey also disclosed that:
College men tend to marry earlier
and in larger proportion than co-
lege women.
Fifty-seven per cent of men alum-
ni, 61 per cent of the women, have
no children.
The divorce rate among college
alumni is low, compared with that of
the country as a whole. More college
women than college men are divorced.
Engineering and business adminis-
tration are most popular undergrad-
uate majors for men; education and
English for women.
Thirty per cent of the men, 19 per
cent of the women were unable to find
the work they wanted after gradua-
Ninety-nine per cent of college al-
umni have never been on relief.
A typical graduate will earns about
$1,321 during his first year after
graduation. After eight years he will
receive $2,416.
