The latest data on American demographics and what it means for higher education’s future

The United States Census recently released data about the nation’s population. This is very rich and useful stuff in general, and in particular has relevance for higher education.

Here I’ll summarize highlights, then add some thoughts about what it all might mean for the next decade of colleges and universities. I don’t have time to go into the electoral implications (In the US, Census results feed into shifting and redesigning Congressional districts.).
