New research shows that Latinos, when compared with other ethnic groups, are more inclined to attend two-year colleges, or go to college part time, than to earn four-year degrees. This chart shows the percentages, by racial or ethnic category, of 18- to 24-year-old high school graduates who are enrolled in undergraduate education. (The figures do not include those in that age group who may already have graduated or are no longer enrolled.)
