22nd April 2010:
Immigrants have opened the book of academic success in America.

According to the Census Bureau report, they constitute nearly one-third of Americans with doctoral degrees in 2009.


The report says their number has registered a sharp increase compared with five years earlier. For the first time, one in 10 adults on an average was educated beyond a bachelor’s degree.


The report makes it clear that 35 per cent of women and 27 per cent of men had a bachelor’s degree, among adults in their late 20s. The gender gap was eight per cent, compared with three percentage points in 1999.
