The U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Tuesday, January 24th that the weekly salary for individuals with a college degree is nearly double that of individuals who only have a high school diploma. This data, which was gathered from statistics during the 4th quarter of 2011, shows that weekly salary has also grown by 1.6 percent across the board since 2010. Possession of a college degree can have a huge impact on quality of life.

The study further revealed that individuals without a high school diploma only earned an average of $444 per week, while those with a high school degree were able to earn $661 per week. Conversely, those with at least a bachelor’s degree earned an average of $1,158 per week. Looking even further, those with advanced degrees, such as a master’s degree, earned up to twice that amount. The study broke it down into two interesting groups. The top 10 percent of earners with a master’s degree who were male earned $3,146 per week. Women in this same group earned only $2,303.
