Men Are a Majority of the Population in Age Brackets for Traditional College Students

Women make up nearly 51 percent of the total U.S. population. But this slight advantage is due to the greater number of women in higher age brackets. For example, women make up nearly three quarters of the U.S. population over the age of 90 and 83 percent of the population over the age of 100.

Women make up 57 percent of the total enrollments in higher education. But in actuality, men are more numerous than women in age brackets for traditional college students. Men are 51 percent of the total population in the 15-to-19 age bracket and the 20-to-24 age bracket.

In fact there are more men than women in all age brackets up to age 35.  Women are majority of the population in all age brackets over 35 years.
