So how does college in 2020 compare to when you were born? Stacker took a look at what college was like every year over the last century. To provide statistical context about college, Stacker consulted multiple sources. For data from 1946 to 1990, Stacker consulted the National Center for Education Statistics’s 120 Years of American Education report, released in 1993. For data from 1991 to 2020, Stacker consulted a separate table from the National Center for Education Statistics, released in 2019. As a result of using two separate reports, there is a discrepancy in data-collection methodology that causes a noticeable decrease in college enrollment between 1990 and 1991. Data from 2019 and 2020 are also projections. Stacker supplemented these statistics with information from higher education organizations, university timelines, news articles, and other authoritative sources to discover major moments in higher education since 1921.
