Indiana gets B+ in college completion

The Journal Gazette points out the good news as well. Indiana does well compared to other states in graduating its college students. Fifty-five percent (55%) of Indiana's first time/fulltime college students completed a Bachelor's degree within 6 years.

Over the last decade it is also 10% more likely that an Indiana student will be enrolled in college by the age 19.

10% from what? This is only an impressive statistic if the number isn't low to begin with. I would be curious as to where and how these statistics were found.

Here is a link that you can paste into your address bar that will take you directly to the actual report. I have only read the media coverage of the report but not the report itself.
